Note: This is a regular Playbill size program.
Condition is near excellent with minor wear.
CONDITION: I use a six-step condition scale to describe the overall paper quality: Mint, Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair, Poor. Good means just that: desireable for a collection with no immediate need to upgrade. Excellent and Mint are usually reserved for publisher and music store remainders. Expect Good-minus and Fair to have considerable wear. All specific condition faults are noted after the general condition.
IMAGES: I use a digital camera so the entire piece is visible.
BILLING: Please note: The eBay automated end-of-auction notice is NOT my invoice. I personally invoice 1-3 days after closing. I combine multiple wins, add fair postage and handling, and insurance if necessary or at your request. I ship in specially designed cardboard mailers. Payment is expected promptly.
