There appear to be frame abrasions along the extreme outer edges of the board. Under UV: there appears to be a small section of fine lines of inpaint in the black background above the cantaloupe, likely to address thinness in the paint layer. There appear to be some additional, very minor vertical lines of inpaint in the fruit at center, corresponding to surface cracking.
