At International Vintage Posters, we do our best to accurately describe each piece. We do not to use terms like “Mint” or “Near Mint”, as they are highly subjective. We invite you to submit any inquiries before you decide to make a purchase and are happy to forward additional images upon request.
“A” condition posters are in excellent condition. They are clean, retain their original coloring and are generally free of defects. These posters will not have had restoration beyond the actual mounting process, which may include mended tears in the margin of the poster; very light fold lines may be evident to an up close inspection.
Posters in “B” condition are in fine condition. They may have minor paper loss, usually limited to the border area, which may have been replaced. Fold lines may have been retouched. Evidence of tape residue or removal may be visible in the corners or border area.
Posters described in “C” condition are in very good condition. “C” posters may show visible wear, fold lines, tape residue or light foxing. These posters will have had professional, archival restoration work.
