Overall the sheet remains clean and attractive for a print more than 200 years old.
Please inspect zoom scan closely. Any noteworthy flaws to the printed surface area should be visible within the enlargable scan provided.

Despite any age flaws, the printed area remains visually pleasing. The print has a "noble" antiquarian feel to it, and remains well preserved.
If we were discussing old coins, we would be discussing circulated silver coinage of this era, the type now age worn from circulation but still nice, basically well preserved, overall clean, with a noble appearance of genuine age, basically still attractive and worthy of ownership despite any flaws.
An appealing, uncommon and interesting antique image that any collector, dealer or institution would be happy to own or display. Could also readily be collected in a personal scrapbook album or given as a present.
