Unrestored photos with an overall presentable appearance. They may have tears, slight paper loss, toning, stains, checking, creases, rippling, curling, pinholes, edge wear, and/or corner bends. There are a very few photos with paper lifts or remnants. There are nineteen duplicate photos and two sets of triplicate photos. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details.
