Summary Very good

Assessor Laura Shively

Notes The box itself is in good condition. A little bit dusty/dirty but there is no major chipping of paint or scratches inside or outside the box. The hinges all look in good condition, there is no rusting. The removable tray is alos in good shape with not scratches, gouges or chipping of paint. The tools themselves appear to be in decent condition thought it appears that some could be missing from the set.
