Summary Fair-Poor

Assessor Jordan Beres

Notes The corners of the box's lid are covered in a yellow tape to hold it all together, as well as two more large pieces across the middle of the lid. The box also has tape on all 4 corners as well as two pieces on the bottom.The tape is coming off in some areas. Despite the fixes, the lid has two corners with a tear and an additional tear near the middle on one of the sides of the lid. Bottom of the box is holding together much better. The box has some dirt smudges. The lid also has some residue from tape on one of the sides. The paper piece inside box also shows wear and has several small tears on its divider's corners. The ornaments in the box are relatively in good shape, with vibrant colors still in the glass, but the paint on the sides are beginning to wear away.There are some writings in pencil on the side of the lid. Interior of box is dirty.
