Summary Good

Assessor Hannah Lartz

Notes Some of the ducks heads are bent, or were reattached with tape. The gun is real metal so it is starting of rust. Many red spot all over it. The platform has a few stains but otherwise it's fine. The lid is also stained on the outside. The bottom of the box is ripped open on one of the short sides. The bullets are fine.
