Signed at the close, "Pa Pa Anson." Fountain pen handwriting and signature rate 7 to 8 out of 10 with some scattered slight smudges (one of which effects the autograph). Light toning with typical fold lines and some minor wear. Includes auction LOA from JSA and the 8.5"x16" frame in which it was displayed in the Green Diamond Gallery: Overall EX
