Fair to good, with dampstaining to both boards and front board bowed. Some wear and small chips at heel and crown, with corners slightly worn. Closed 2" tear to ffep. Some plates have a tideline that varies from the very shallow, just along one edge or corner, to almost touching the image; some of these with occasional, light foxing in the margins.
