This hand-colored gelatin silver print is in generally very good condition.
Only visible in high raking light are a few scattered soft creases and a bump in the lower portion, all of which probably appear during the flush-mounting process. Scatted tiny ... at the edges, probably due to the artist hand-cutting, are visible at the edges upon very close inspection.
