This photograph is in generally excellent condition. When examined closely in raking light, an approximately one-inch thin scratch that does not appear to break the emulsion and a tiny rust-colored deposit are visible in the lower portion of the image.
The mount is sunned in a thin band at the periphery of the image. The reverse is faintly age-darkened.
