This ferrotyped gelatin silver print, on Agfa paper, is in generally excellent condition. Typical of ferrotyped works, there are small scratches and pitting across the surface of the print. There is a 2-inch crease along the lower right edge, which does not appear to break the emulsion and is visible only in raking light. A pinpoint-sized area of original retouching is visible on the sitter's ankle. There is wear to the corners and margin edges.
The reverse is appropriately age-darkened at the edges. It is annotated 'GL099-1' in pencil in an unidentified hand.
When viewed under ultraviolet light, this print appears to fluoresce.
