Summary Good

Assessor Christina

Notes Cobalt blue sign. The side that is visible to the visitors does not have the lustre that the opposite side has. This side also has fading of paint and wear along the edges, especially the lower edge. There is a bit of erosion and rust along the edge that is mounted to the wall. The backside is in better condtion.
