Please bear in mind that this is genuine theatre used advertising material and it will inevitably show some sign of use and its age.If a poster has been linen backed we will grade it as per its current condition and endeavor to highlight any flaws it may have had prior to the backing/restoration process. To achieve this grade a poster would have to be totally flawless, no markings or creasing of any kind whatsoever (inclusive of oiling fingerprints on high gloss examples). It is highly unlikely you would find a poster that has truly achieved this grade.
