Summary Good

Assessor Hannah Lartz

Notes The scroll is in good shape except for some discoloration on its lefthand side near the metal end, and a rip down the center of the paper, not near an edge, almost two inches long. The box clearly has water damage, at the not open end, visible on both the inner an outer boxes. Paper warping on outerbox at that end. Openings edges are alittle worn, but not too bad.
