This photograph is in generally good to very good condition. When examined in raking light, the following are visible: scattered small soft and sharp handling creases; a few deposits of original retouching; and a one-and-1/2-inch linear impression. None of the aforementioned appear to break the emulsion.
The upper and lower margins are softly rippled and this extends very slightly into the image. The margin is faintly yellowed overall. There is minor wear to the margin edges and corners, most noticeably at the upper right corner.
