This photograph is in generally excellent condition. When examined closely in raking light, a 2-1/2-inch scratch that does not appear to break the emulsion is visible in the upper left quadrant along the edge. The mount is faintly yellowed in a thin band at the periphery of the photograph, and small framer's marks in graphite are visible near each corner of the photograph.
There are graphite marks, a few tape remnants, some abrasions, and minor soiling on the reverse of the mount.
