Summary very good

Assessor BN

Notes The front is in very good condition. Edges are worn with loss of paint at top edge near right and bottom edge at lower right corner. Some liquid streaks on the tray, most likely from wiping the surface. Very faint wear on surface, some minor surface abrasions. In upper right quadrant there is a small scratch and 1" to the left of that some loss of paint. At left, the interior edge at bottom of the tray is dirty and discolored. The back is worn with accretion at center. Rust on edges. Loss on bottom of the tray at the corners. Light scratches on surface. White marks at right near edge in upper right quadrant.

Notes Further verification is needed. Like CMY1866, this tray fits the characteristics of an original tray, but there were reproductions made in the 1960s-1980s of Coca-Cola trays.
