Melissa's note: Some images have glue residue on the back sides, and some images are folded over to fit in the filing cabinet. Labels can fall off of the tabs, but can be inserted back in or taped on. Occasional tears in the mounted board. Some chipped-away parts of photos, like on "Rhino Slab," in Cabinet A116, Drawer 2, where a portion of the photo is chipped off. Some spotting on photos.
