PHOTO NOTE: The grainy nature of the images are a photo distortion, and the colors appear somewhat muted. The scanning process tends to exaggerate creases and small flaws, which are usually much less noticeable when viewed in person.
CONDITION NOTE: Near mint - in Almost Uncirculated (AU) condition. One light corner counting fold. Isolated spots of light edge discoloration on the white borders.
