Summary Good

Assessor Hannah Lartz

Notes The box top and bottom are marked up with pencil, probably from playing, adding up money totals. The lid is stained, and very dirty. The board is worn near the edges of the back seam. Some cards are warped from bending. Otherwise, all the other pieces seem in fine condition.
