There is an inpainted small 1/8 inch loss by the groom's forward most foot and another small loss at lower right edge near frame. Another small loss above one of the onlooker's heads (right of bride). A few smaller touches difficult to see under dense varnish layer (fluoresces green), however apparent from reverse. Wear with losses along the edges due to frame rub.
