Summary Very good

Assessor Samanta Pugh

Notes Case shows signs of wear. The case exterior is in very good condition overall. There are two areas on the front where the material has a raised texture. There is also a spot with some dirt-like mark. On the back, there are two clear spots where some sort of residue is or the material was scratched off eliminating the original texture of the object. There is also a small red spot on the left side. When opening the case, there is a small chip on the left side of the case's folded lip. The fabric inside shows some wear, it has some discoloration spots and on the lid portion the fabric is coming off around the edges on top. The edges of the fabric on the lid also are much darker, almost to a black color. Case is fiunctioning well.
