Summary Fair

Assessor Christina

Notes This dark tan straight razor case is in fair condition. The proper left end is peeling back a bit, whereas the box is supposed to open down the middle of the box instead of the ends. The box shows considerable wear and handling. There is overall discoloration, water damage, and other wear. The silver lettering is still legible. there is a 5mm white circle over the word "Off." on the front.
