A partially restored poster with bright color and a clean overall appearance. It may have general signs of use, such as slight edge wear, creasing, toning, or very minor tears. Though backed on linen, no further restoration efforts have been made. A poster graded Very Fine+ may still be on Linen, but this is the highest grade allowed for a poster in this state. Grades on all restored items are pre-restoration grades. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Very Fine- on Linen.
