This early print is in generally excellent condition. The negative is numbered '15689P-1' at the upper right corner, in the black margin. When examined in raking light, the following are visible: scattered tiny impressions that do not appear to break the emulsion, mostly in the lower portion of the image; and a few small, circular matte deposits in the lower center. The upper and lower edges are faintly rippled, extending slightly into the image. The margin edges and corners are mildly rubbed.
There are several linen tape remnants on the reverse of the print along the edges. The Condé Nast copyright stamp on the reverse is dated '1984' and annotated 'COURTESY OF VOGUE' in ink. The edition stamp indicates that there are no more than '12' signed gelatin silver prints of this image. 'REF' is also stamped on the reverse and numbered '3095' in pencil. The following notation is written on the reverse of the print in ink: 'Print made near to date of photographic sitting. IP.'
