Summary Good

Assessor Ben Locke

Notes The sign appears to be in good shape. The frame has some minor edgewear. The gold engraving and knight images have been well protected by the frame. Cardboard backing is somewhat worn and has water damage, but appears to be doing a good job protecting the rear of the advertisement.
