Summary fair

Assessor BN

Notes Overall stable condition. The corners are angled, but most likely not original. Looks like each corner broke off or was purposely filed down. The edges are uneven. Surface wear and scratches on glass. Edges are worn. White accretions on glass by "M" in Muresco. At upper left and right corners there is brown discoloration. Can see areas of paint loss on front from back side of sign. Loss of paint on edges. Loss of paint at top center. Small areas of loss throughout sign. On back around Muresco it looks as if the sign was painted and touched up.
