ASM 109 that needed some cleaning and flattening

This was a fun one. It might not have gotten a big grade bump but it does look a whole lot better. It has a heavy stain on the bottom that wanted to continue to live in the paper despite our efforts. We kind of took this one farther than we normally would because it wasn't in the greatest condition to begin with.


Some side by side comparisons

We decided the because the stains were so large and on the spine that we would give it a good wash.

The wash did help with the stains minimally but it did improve the paper color significantly. It started out pretty close to off white and ended up pretty close to white.

You can really see the improvement in paper color and how less prevalent the stain on the bottom is. We were able to really lighten up the blue distributor ink and in some areas get rid of it altogether.
