Overall
the card remain clean & very attractive- someone long ago used a piece of tape to reinforce the folding flap- this is visible in the scan- as it has likely been there for a very long time, the card will keep this same nice appearance for a very long time.

An exceedingly uncommon and pleasing old transformation card from the late 19th century.
