[note: we grade conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws.].
Map remains well preserved, 1" tear at bottom corner cleanly closed on back with archival tape and essentially invisible to the eye now. Some light age wear or surface spotting/ soiling which is visible within the scan, overall visually appealing
Paper and image remains overall clean & sound. Old maps & prints often display small minor repairs on the back, could have uneven blank margins, might have extraneous fold-lines or other small minor age flaws which do not detract from the visual appeal or value.
