1) Torn apart and glued;
2) Those who changed the original color (filled with paint, ink, oil, who have been in water and chemical compounds, etc.);
3) Burnt, not retaining the main signs of payment;
4) Having significant damage of a deliberate nature (the main drawings have been changed, in particular, portraits of people; the presence of significant ink inscriptions; the security thread has been removed, etc.).
