The stains near the upper edge and at lower left may be from water damage. There are pinholes near the upper corners and small nicks to the lower corners (these may be partial pinholes). There is a dog-ear crease near the upper right corner and smaller dog-ear creases near the lower left and lower right corners. There is pale toning to the edges (recto and verso). There is adhesive residue to the upper left and lower let corners on the verso and white tape remnants in three places near the upper edge on the verso.
