Upgrade image from Wikimedia replaces small black and white image originally posted 24 June 2010 after numerous cracked paint flaws and spots were fixed with Photoshop and the margins were cropped and remaining mounting flaws were fixed with Photoshop. This image is much cleaner and somewhat smaller than the version posted on Wikimedia.
