We grade the condition of our Prints and Ads as follows:
Fine: We use this designation very rarely, as it suggests that the print or ad is flawless and in essentially perfect original condition. To earn this grade, the print or ad must be a beautiful example with no flaws. (Please refer to main image for a closer look, as it is the exact print that you will receive.)
VG+: This grade means that the print or ad has only the most minor defects, such as a small amount of marginal soiling or foxing, not affecting the image. Any defects would be completely hidden once matted. (Please refer to main image for a closer look, as it is the exact print that you will receive.)
VG: This grade means that the print or ad has minor defects, which may range from minor soiling or foxing to a very minor tear, none of which pertrude into the image itself. Any defects would be completely hidden once matted. (Please refer to main image for a closer look, as it is the exact print that you will receive.)
VG-: This grade means that there is relatively significant staining, soiling, foxing etc. Most of the imperfections would be hidden once matted. The print or ad is all present and still in a collectible condition. (Please refer to main image for a closer look, as it is the exact print that you will receive.)
Good: This grade means that there is significant soiling, foxing, creasing or water damage, which pertrudes into the image itself, but still worthy of consideration for a collector. We infrequently offer a print or ad in such condition, unless it is a highly desirable print or ad. (Please refer to main image for a closer look, as it is the exact print that you will receive.)
Poor: This grade means that there is significant imperfections or other factors which significantly detract from the print or ad. We rarely offer prints or ads in poor condition, unless it is extremely rare and collectible. (Please refer to main image for a closer look, as it is the exact print that you will receive.)
