Originally, prior to restoration the poster was graded a C7.5, Very Fine Minus. The restoration included repairs to slight fold separation and fold wear, pinholes, and very minor tears.This original poster is ready for framing and display immediately. The very minor flaws - after restoration - noted above are not visible unless one does a very close inspection of the poster under bright light. At a very short viewing distance, the poster appears flawless. We believe that the original movie poster THE RETURN OF DRACULA has good investment value. And a grade of C8.5, Very Fine to Near Mint, on linen, certainly adds to its investment value. Note: The corners are held down by weights which is what you see in the photos.
