CQout - Frequently Asked Questions - Standard Conditions & Grades for Movie Posters & Lobby Cards

No imperfections of any kind. Since posters were meant to be used in theatres, only those that were not issued or not actually used are likely to make this grade.

May have minor wear along folds or at the edges, or very minor tears at fold intersections; also slight dust shadows or tanning may be present. No restoration other than linen mounting is acceptable in this grade.

The following flaws are acceptable: slight wear or very minor separation along folds; small flakes or tears at fold intersections; one or two tack holes or small creases per corner; slight edge tears and soiling. In short, actual use is quite apparent. Posters that have been restored to appear to be near mint are commonly graded very fine.

A fine poster is beginning to show real use. It may have several tack holes per corner or in the border and more severe instances of the flaws mentioned for very fine.

A very good poster will have been used several times in theatres or elsewhere. Again, flaws as previous but more severe instances of the flaws mentioned for very fine.

A poster that is well used but still intact. There are now small pieces missing from the border or slightly into the background. Minor colour fading, staining, chipping, and pen marks are allowable, as long as they do not affect the poster's central artwork.
