Slight rubbing to tiny areas of paint. Some cracking to frame, and sections that are shown missing have now been repaired but all intact and not loose. The backboards have also been correctly fitted. The white marks in the photographs are reflections not marks in the paintwork. Now overall in a good condition ready to hang.
