Heritage Movie Posters, which is selling the item, describes it as: "Vintage gelatin silver, single weight, and glossy photo. An unrestored photo with a clean overall appearance. It may have general signs of use, such as slight edge wear, small corner bumps, pinholes, or very minor tears. Light scratches. details. Very Fine-."
Something else that's "very fine" is the opening bid price -- 99 cents -- but for a vintage Lombard pic, you know it won't last that long. Bids conclude at 10:54 a.m. (Eastern) next Monday, and expect multiple bids for this over the next week.

Next up, Lombard with a Paramount artist named Eric Stone, showing off his tribute to her:
The photo also has a Dec. 29, 1931 stamp from the NEA syndicate.
