Good overall. A few scattered stain spots and very light toning. Slight uniform browning in left 1/8th of the chart likely due to the way it was stored. Few small splits closed on verso (archival and clear tape). A few pencil markings (likely from actual use of the chart). Nice clear print. Uncolored. Rolled.
