Backed on linen, there has been no touchup applied to pinholes in the borders, soft surface scuffs, minor splices in the bottom corners, and a small tear in the lower right corner. Also visible is a tear from the top border into the upper background, as well as some staining to the left of the lower text. Fine+ on Linen.
