Hi Ryan

There's nothing wrong with the file. It could be that yours got lost in the postings. I must admit that I'd missed it until I saw your second post.

It's badly damaged so could take restorers a good while to repair.

I'm just kicking it off with a tweak to the contrast and minimal stuff. I don't feel as though it should be 'sanitized' too much, given the trade.

edit to add: Now I've seen it on the page.... I may have to spend a bit more time :-\
