CONDITION: 8 (Excellent-) The squadron patch is in a very good condition with only minor wear and soiling. The newsprint has yellowed some, as has the framed document, please refer to the images below. The frame itself is a little fragile and was never properly backed – but the backing that remains is original, as is evidenced by the stickers. The photographs are in a generally great condition.
