GOOD CONDITION: The Prints and their Portfolio have been folded in half, each now has a folding crease across its center; the prints also have a lighter diagonal crease. The Prints are in otherwise Very Good condition, bright and clear. They would look beautiful mounted and/or framed. The descriptive sheet has some ink underlining and an ink line that marks a paragraph. The portfolio folder has two ink stamps on the front cover that read: AH PAMPHLET FILE (American Heritage Pamphlet File). The portfolio also has some wear to its edges, including some small closed tears, and some light stains and soiling, but is still doing its job well. As these have been stored folded in half, they will be shipped folded.
