Impression Very Fine. Nicely executed "bokashi" shading to sky, buildings, and foreground; full moon stands forward via heavy "gauffrage"; nicely detailed carving.
Condition Nearly Excellent. (Very faint 1/8-inch matline along left edge--otherwise flawless. Still side-tipped onto original "presentation folder's" backing.)
