Also apparent is some staining with faint spots in the interior and mild surface rippling. It has a few small chips in the edges, pinholes, and a very slight trim along the borders from when the poster was backed. There are a few small pieces of archival tape on the verso bracing tears. Fine- on Kraft Paper.
