Summary Fair

Assessor Hannah Lartz

Notes Several wooden panels are broken, or cracked, on the bottom of the crate and on its front. The metal is corroded around the boxes corners. The box is very dirty, a blotch of yellow paint is on one of the long sides. The other long side has what appears to be a roud white sticker stuck to it. The words are mostly worn off from the shorter sides of the box.
