Summary Good

Assessor Samanta Pugh

Notes The door knob brass frame is in good condition. A section on the top and the bottom is no longer of the same brass color as the middle section, it is dark grey which appears to be tarnish. Some small spots of dark grey are also seen on this middle section. The brass base of the knob also has tarnished on some areas and some small white pain-like spots are on it. The knob has a larger scratch right on the center, and some very small ones around it, but other than that it is intact. The wooden frame has only a few very small scratches, but it has no chips. The back of the frame also has few scratches but no significant damage other than the hole that was made through the wood to screw the door knob to it.
