Summary Good

Assessor Samanta Pugh

Notes There is a lot of rust on the bottom and a bit on the cap. Cap also has a small dent, some scratches on the metal and some sort of residue on one side of the edge. Cap turns sideways properly to open the holes. The paper label is in good condition, it has some dark smudges on several areas and two fold marks on the back, one all accross vertically and a smaller one sideways. There is some pencil mark next to the dog's face on the front. There are some tiny tears near the bottom edge to the left of "Noxem Products Co.".
