Condition of posters
When evaluating the condition of a poster, especially an old one, the criteria is different from what generally determines the state of printed works. For example, a poster may still be given «A» classification, even though 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.
