Summary Good

Assessor Laura Shively

Notes The back of the board does have some pencil markings and a few on the front of the board. Missing box and pieces. Front of the board has a split down the middle but no discoloration or faiding. Corners are a little squished but not noticable when the board is open. Board is still legible and all the characters and font are recognizable.
