Both copper plates are flat and stable. The paint surfaces are relatively clean with a clear varnish.

The former - In raking light it is possible to discern small areas of retouching scattered in the sky, mostly around the pointed rock, in the rock itself, in the hull of the foremost ship, and to the ground below the tower lower left. Inspection under ultraviolet light confirms these and appears to further reveal some spots of wash retouching in the centre of the sky, in the sea to the right of the main ship, and upper right.

The latter - In raking light it is possible to discern small retouchings scattered through the sky, most notably in the upper left and right corners, to the pinnacle of the building on the left, and through the centre of this architecture (possibly to an old area of flaking). Other retouchings are found in the body of the largest ship in the centre, and scattered in the architecture of the harbour. These are confirmed by inspection under ultraviolet light.

Both in overall good condition.
