  • Support as nominator --Tomer T (talk) 22:14, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose Noisy, dust spots, appears to be some damage to the picture, looks like some light scanning lines throughout the picture. Needs restoration badly. Dusty777 02:24, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Weak oppose but would probably support a restored version. Quality is just too poor compared to how good a better scan and restoration could be. -RunningOnBrains(talk) 16:52, 31 July 2012 (UTC)
    • Given what happened last time someone tried to do a restoration, don't count on it anytime soon. -Adam.
