Summary Fair

Assessor Jordan Beres

Notes This bank has little damage. It has a distinctive blue mark on the left cheek and also a line across his right cheek. There is a little tearing by the coin slot that continues down from the slot. Many of the colors are still very good on the bank itsellf. The figure has dirt spots on several areas. Also the bottom is a little worn as well.
