The map is the cleanest and brightest example we've seen from this series, unfortunately it has some small fold intersection splits with one being a 1/2" puncture with no loss. The boards are also fine except the upper tip is missing on front and two large pieces are missing from back cover at top.

Estimate: $80 - $100
