Summary Fair

Assessor Katie Wells

Notes The glass has a large crack on the front above Thompson's as well as stick from tape or a sticker that must have been on it There is rust that circles the bottom of the glass as well a small part of the tan lining that separates the glass from the metal coming off. The metal may need to be polished it does not look in the best condition. There are some chips in the tan base.
