Summary fair

Assessor Katie Wells

Notes Very rusty. The metal cylinder has a brown top that is very rusted . There is a logo on the top, but is too rusted and faded to make out. The logo looks like it might have been red in color with white? lettering and symbol. The symbol has an oval with lines in it separateing the letters N,B, and C on the rest of the cylinder there are rust spots in many different areas of the cylinder. there are dark black spots over the words famous ginger and some of the word wafers on one side, but it remains easy to make out the words.
