A partially restored poster that may be slightly brittle due to age, show edge wear, mild creases, pinholes tears, and chips. Restoration has addressed some of these issues, including a tear from the top edge into the central image, and the borders and background have been mostly airbrushed.

It is most likely in need of some degree of work or further restoration. Grades on all restored items are pre-restoration grades.
Sunday Internet Movie Poster: These auctions are presented only online and bidding is only taken through our website. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 10 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 10 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:03, the new end time for that lot would become 10:13. If no other bids were placed before 10:13, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 10 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 6 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:10. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
