Cover: Glossy. Very faint tan spot, 1 inch by 1 ½ inch. Otherwise very nice.
Binding is solid, with some rubbing to edge of spine, with cover edge splits ¼ at top and 1 inch at bottom of spine. Mailing label attached. Back cover has two ¼ inch tears at bottom edge.
Pages are in excellent condition with no tears, cutouts, or soil, except for one tiny red spot on one page. Original advertising inserts intact. Slightest age toning, as is expected in vintage magazines.
My vintage magazines are stored and shipped in acid-free clear storage sleeves stiffened with acid-free board backing. The outer shipping container is of extra rigid cardboard, providing extra protection for your purchase.
