Summary poor

Assessor BN

Notes Overall, rust throughout. The flange component of sign is very worn with loss around edges where holes were punched out for hanging. Flange is warped and dented. Flange has been painted, not original. Surface scratches and wear. On top edge where flange connects to circular part of sign there is a chip in the metal. White accretions from dust and storage. Chips in enamel around edges. On back side by the bottom center of the bell graphic there is the outline of a flower-like shape. Specks of red paint on front.
