Summary Fair-Poor

Assessor Jordan Beres

Notes The colors on the piece are actually quite nice, except for fading on the front of the overalls. The statue is also quite dirty on the clothing with yellowish stains. A very crucial piece is missing in the hamburger, which should be in the right hand of the statue. On the bottom of the base there is a hole exposing it, some cracks around it and brown paint spots. Base also has some scratches on the brown paint and three screw holes on the back.
