Good gloss. All pages present with no markings or cutouts. Pages have very little signs of handling---a very few have slightest edge wear and small corner bends. Some age toning, as is typical in vintage magazines. Cover has edge wear and corner crease. Mailing label attached.
The binding is fragile at the top third of the magazine. Some pages are separating to the top half (down to the middle staple). Bottom half-inch of spine has wear.
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.
