This silver print is in very good condition. Matt finish. Hinge mounted to mount backboard with one piece of archival tape at lower left edge. Some very superficial 'brushstrokes' scratch lines and indentation marks in darker areas of print, only visible in raking light and close inspection and inherent with matt print.
