Condition of posters
The criteria used to evaluate posters, particularly old ones, differ considerably from those generally employed in the evaluation of printed works. A poster may still be given «A» classification, for example, even if it is slightly crumpled or soiled or if there are minor tears outside the actual picture.
A = Poster in good condition. Picture completely preserved. Wrinkles and small tears, if any, restricted to edges.
B = Picture completely preserved. Wrinkles and tears possible.
C = Poster restored.
aJ = Mounted on Japanese vellum.
aL = Mounted on linen.
aF = Mounted on foil.
