Summary Fair

Assessor Cassie Coffey

Notes Wooden box (CMY1114a) is in poor condition with a large crack on the base, making it weak. Lid (CMY1114b) has some discoloring and scratches or notches. The label is discolored from its adhesive and contains bubbling. "Made in U.S.A" is faded. Pieces (CMY1114c-jj) are in fair condition with some notches and fading in color. All pieces are structurally sound. There is some leftover room inside of the box, which may pertain to missing pieces.
