PHOTO NOTE: Photos distort the clarity of the images and sometimes the intensity of the colors. The muted "grainy" look is a distortion. The colors are more vivid and the clarity greater when viewed in person. Minute defects are exaggerated by the scanning process, and many are barely noticeable when viewed in person.
CONDITION: Excellent condition. Tan cast is possibly age-discoloration. ALL FLAWS ARE OBVIOUS IN THE PHOTOS.
