All sheets, along with a colored decorative title sheet are laid into their original paper folder which then slides into a stiff paper slip-sleeve.

The title sheet remains bright and clear, though is darkened and smudged around the edges, and has a small inked number at the bottom edge and at the top of the verso. The teal folder that holds them is intact, though a bit soiled, and the salmon colored sleeve is very worn.
