A picture is worth a thousand words. The photos are a major part of the item description. Please examine them closely, as what you see is what we will send you.

Map remains well preserved with a nice age patina. Some light age wear or surface spotting/ soiling which is visible within the scan, normal fold-lines as always due to manner it was issued folded. Normal wrinkling to paper surface.
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.
