Summary very good

Assessor BN

Notes Overall very good condition. Metal frame has some spots from liquid. Metal has light scratches. Frame is loose on lower right corner and upper left corner. Glass has some stains and streaks from liquid. Near left edge at center there is a black spot. It looks as if the text on the bottom is faded, but difficult to discern since the sign was mean to be illuminated.
