Summary Good

Assessor Christina

Notes This is a white case that is sturdy and reinforced by layers of cardboard to protect the sharp contents inside. This box is empty. There is writing on the back in pencil. It looks like it says "For" so-and-so. Could have been a gift. If the two halves of the box are separated to reveal the black layer, there is another inscription in pencil which has initials, possibly "E.T.T.", and a date, "1/20/20". The outside of the box on the front shows the printed writing from the company in green, and a faded green line bordering the box. There are two brown circular marks on the front over the words "cutlery" and "Store". they are possibly burn marks. There are three light brown spots on the right side on the front surrounding the words "Third" and "Milwaukee".
