Summary Fair

Assessor Samanta Pugh

Notes Tin has scratches pretty much all around its metal surface, some more noticeable than others. In many areas such scratches removed the color exposing the base silver color of metal. There are many rusting spots also throughout the tin. Still able to read all words on container. There are two spots where there used to be a sticker that once removed left some residue, a larger one to the right of the picture of the tobacco leaves, another smaller on top between the picture of the dog and the left side sign saying "Granger". The metal on body of tin has flattened in a little on the front part making the removal and replacement of lid a bit difficult. The lid also has some rusting all around as well as smudge spots and some sctaches. There is a dent on one extremity of the lid. The bottom of the tin has many scratches and rusting as well exposing a darker color metal underneath the gold.
