Summary Very good

Assessor Hannah Lartz

Notes The box has a water mark/liquid stain of some kind on the back towards the top. It's about an inch in diameter. The writing is still readable through this mark. The tube is in excellent condition, but the red rubber stopper is hardened, and has small white spots all over it.
