Topedge has modest fade and small spot, bottoms of boards have faint surface blemish. Non price clipped ($2.00) second state DJ, same as first state just has the second state blurbs in orange bands. Jacket is very good for age and light color with overall rub/tone, modest wear to extremities with some small chips mostly at spine ends. Bottom of front panel has some stain as can be seen in pic's and the name Ernest Hemingway has been penned on rear panel upper area just below his printed name, I doubt it is the authors signature and am not offering it as such. The photo makes the bottom of rear panel look like it's stained but it's not, it's just from the camera and the bottom of rear jacket panel is the same color as the reat of the rear panel.
