Vintage movie posters are historical artefacts. They will each have a unique story and a patina of age according to their use some will have been displayed outside cinemas during the film's actual run and will show greater wear and tear, while others will have remained pristine in a darkened store all their lives. Despite their differences, all conditions of posters deserve to be displayed, albeit for different reasons. It's purely a matter of personal preference.Remember that, until the advent of merchandising in the late 1980's, movie posters were considered disposable advertising material. They were printed on cheap, highly acidic paper that turned brown and brittle with age. They were machine folded at the printer - these fold lines structurally weaken the paper, often resulting in splits along the folds especially where fold lines meet. Many surviving posters were pinned to st walls (leaving pinholes) or sellotaped up (leaving acidic tape burns).
Depending on your point of view, these are faults or they are a life history to be celebrated. As collectors, we love all of them but it's certainly true that their value is largely dependant upon condition so we do need a consistent grading system. A poster in MINT condition looks like it has just been printed with no defects at all. A poster in NEAR MINT condition may have very minor defects in the border area, but not the artwork itself. A FINE poster might have pin holes in the corners and a few minor creases and smudges.
A poster in VERY GOOD condition may have defects in the border and the edge of the poster's artwork. There may be some minor fading.There may also be small splits or tears, especially along the fold lines. Most used posters fall into this category and will still display very well. A poster in GOOD condition may have small tears or holes along the borders and there may be minor staining in the artwork.
A poster in FAIR condition will have major flaws which directly affect the artwork. This is an area for serious collectors only. Some rare posters will be worth restoring but if you're reading this guide then you're probably not the right person to be considering it. Posters in POOR condition will be disintegrating or seriously damaged. The item "HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL UK 8x10 still 1959 Vincent Price at his best" is in sale since Friday, March 27, 2020.
