This is not considered a flaw or defect. This Restored movie poster is graded C8.5, or Very Fine to Near Mint.
This grade is generally the highest grade a restored original movie poster can receive. Original movie posters are graded, from the top down, as C10 (Mint), C9 (Near Mint), C8 (Very Fine), C7 (Very Good to Very Fine), C6 (Very Good), C5 (Good to Very Good), etc. It is difficult to find any C10 (Mint) original movie posers pre 1985. Originally, prior to restoration the poster was graded at a C7, Fine/Very Fine.
The restoration corrected a chip from the left border which just barely extended into the black artwork, pinholes in the corners and some fold wear with crossfold separation. Both left and right borders have had airbrush work. This original poster is immediately ready for framing and display.
