Summary Poor

Assessor Jordan Beres

Notes The colors are very nice, but the entire box is almost covered in clear tape holding the box together, so much so that it is impossible to open it without cutting the tape. There is a large tear on the back cover. Edges show wear. It also has smudges on a few areas and a large brown stain on the back cover near the owl.
