The color guide remains which proves it is an authentic printer's proof poster. It has been stored flat for over 30 years.
It is in great shape with vibrant colors. There is some subtle creasing and scuffing that I tried to photograph. It has never been hung or displayed. This poster is unique in so many way. Own a piece of movie history!
Printer's Proof: Before a poster was printed in large quantities, the printer would print a limited number of test posters. Commonly, they would leave the color guide on the edge of the poster, which added an extra inch to the width of the poster. These would then be shown to people in a position to "OK" them.
Once they were approved, the final posters would be printed and the proofs normally were destroyed or kept by the printer. A printer's proof is far more rare than a regular one sheet poster, and there is no fear of purchasing a reproduction. That tube is wrapped and placed in a larger PVC tube.
