Summary Very Good

Assessor Hannah Lartz

Notes Inner rim of the glass lid is alittle chipped in several spots. The label, which is under glass, is discolored. It seems like it was at one time gray, and now it is turning white. The glue or adhesive that is holding the glass cover over the label has yellowed around the edges.
