Summary Poor

Assessor Sammy Kailas

Notes This tin is in poor condition. The exterior of the tin is worn away especially along the bottom and lid edges, and there are several scratch marks on the lid and along the drum. The lid of the tin is slightly dented inward. The interior of the tin has a dark orange accretion measuring approximately 2 inches across on the bottom of the drum and there are 4 more accretions on the underside of the lid.
