This early, highly detailed print, on semi-glossy paper and mounted to Brudno illustration board, is in generally excellent condition. Upon extremely close inspection in high raking light, 2 small, faint, superficial surface scratches are barely visible in the upper right quadrant.
The mount is appropriate age-darkened at the edges and there is faint soiling from handling. The corners of the mount are bumped or gently rounded. On the reverse of the mount, 'HC-343' and 'v9sp' are written in an unidentified hand in pencil and '3' in an unidentified hand in red pencil.
