This restored movie poster is rolled and linen backed and measures 28.75" x 42.5". The poster itself measures 27" x 41". Prior to restoration the poster had been Folded.
Most original movie posters pre 1985 are Folded. This is not considered a flaw or defect.This original movie poster is graded C8.5, Very Fine/Near Mint. Original movie posters are graded as follows from the top down: C10 (Mint), C9 (Near Mint), C8 (Very Fine), C7 (Fine/Very Fine), C6 (Fine or Very Good), C5 (Good to Very Good), C4 (Good), etc. A grade of C8.5 is recognized as the highest grade that a restored original movie posters can receive. The pre-restoration grade was C8 Very Fine. Restoration corrected slight fold and crossfold separations, minor paper loss, pinholes, and very minor tears. The poster now displays beautifully. This poster has a very clean and bright appearance on a pristine background and is immediately ready for framing and display. The colors are excellent and the image is pristine.
The minor flaws that do exist, mostly very tiny small spots, are not obtrusive at all and do not detract from the exceptional image of this poster. We believe that the original movie poster CIGARETTE GIRL will hold its value. And with the high grade (Very Fine/Near Mint) condition of this poster coupled with the linen backing, its investment value and continued preservation are definitely enhanced.
