Hi there. This is my first post here so bare with me.

https://posteritati.com/poster/38870/the-cherry-orchard-1977-us-three-sheet-poster

I live in the UK and recently purchased this poster for 10. It is in a wooden frame with glass that appears to be original. It measures 46x23 inches. It has some warping, I assume from slight moister damage. Would it be worth removing it from the frame and flattening it?

I was primerily wondering if it held any real value. The only information I can find online is a few poster shops/sites selling it for $200 - $300 in excellent condition. I also saw a smaller version sell on eBay for $100. I can upload pictures if needs be. Many thanks for any future replies.

When we "bare" with you, do we have to get completely nekkid? :)

On the poster, it almost surely wouldn't justify the cost of restoration (likely hundreds of dollars). Either enjoy it as it is, or look to find a better example in nice condition.

But that's just my opinion.

This poster is on the wall in the class room in Nightmare On Elm Street when Nancy burns her arm on the pipe you can see it when she is leaving the room.

I can't see the price on Posteritati, but if you are using them as a reference, bare in mind that they usually are 75% more expensive than what something is worth.

Hahaha very good! :p Well heres the thing. When I lay the poster in frame flat on its back I can run my hand across the glass and the entire poster flattens out with no sign of stretching or warping from moisture. I suspect what ever is mounting the posting to the backing has come lose with time and the poster has slightly slipped down inside the frame. I am in no way an expert or have any prior knowledge of posters, poster restoration or poster frames so I was hoping someone here may know more or if its even worth me stripping off the original looking backing tape and ditch the frame entirely for example? Or maybe that is an insane thing to do? I just dont know :/

I cant see the price there either but I could see it here (which is what sparked my interest in its value);

Even after taking 75% off from $250, thats $62.50 and I paid 10 GBP ($13.57)  thumbsup.gif

This is the exact poster I have accept mine is in a wooden frame with glass that looks like it is from the 70's. (backing tape yellowed and no sign poster has ever been removed from frame) Unsure if that means anything or not.

This poster is on the wall in the class room in Nightmare On Elm Street when Nancy burns her arm on the pipe you can see it when she is leaving the room.

You have a good eye! I'm now off to go look for that scene!
