This work is in very good condition. Close inspection reveals some light handling marks and rubbing in isolated places to the white outer edge. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals a few irregular areas of fluorescence to the outermost yellow square, which do not appear to be restoration, as well as some irregular fluorescence to the white edges which is due to in-painting.
