Summary Very Good
Assessor Hannah Lartz
Notes The scroll is in excellent condition, a few tares around the beginning papers edges, but otherwise fine. The box within which the scroll sits is fine, except that the metal holding the tab of faberic you pull to slide it out of the outer box, is rusty. The outer box, within which the smaller box sits, is worn around the edges of the opening. Ripped even on one side, about an inch down the corner fold.
