This contact print is in overall excellent condition. There is a short, vertical crease in the lower margin that does not appear to break the emulsion.
There are a few fingerprints and soiling on the reverse, as well as a faint rust-colored deposit. The corners on the reverse are yellowed where they were in contact with plastic matting corners. This yellowing does not affect the image.
When viewed under ultraviolet light, this photograph does not appear to fluoresce.
