Very Good: These have the usual folds, possibly some pinholes, minor edge wear and slight staining but no paper loss.
Good: Has some staining and possibly pinholes, small tears and edge wear but still good enough to frame.

About Australian Movie Posters:
The hand litho process was usually utilized for Australian daybill posters resulting in a rich texture of artwork with subtle toning that was often unique to Australia.
The artists would generally use US poster art or press book images for their inspiration and they would either trace or use their own imagination or a combination of both to come up with a design for the poster. The sizes varied considerably from 13" x 30" from the 40s to the mid 60s to 13" x 26" in the 80s.
Several different printers like W. D. Smith, Royelltone Prints Pty. Ltd., and Simmons Ltd. printed older posters but Robert Burton produced most. During the 70s M.A.P.S started producing movie posters and there is an overlap where both Robert Burton and M.A.P.S printed some original posters.
Other printers like Brown Prior Anderson in Burwood, Victoria, Australia, also printed some of the B grade and R rated Australian posters and, some of the film distributors like Roadshow produced their own posters.
It is important to note that daybills for the original release of a film often included a lesser duotone and black and white style. In many cases these are mistakenly referred to as copies or later reissues but they were generally released at the same time the full colour versions were issued so are also originals.
