Summary Good Condition

Assessor Katherine Dickey

Notes Top and bottom corners of bos are worn and expose cardboard. The proper front top section of the box is bent slightly inwards with a 1.75 inch rip in the upper portion. Discoloration and rust-colored markings are on the left, right and back sides of the box---look like they can be cleaned or removed
