Summary Fair

Assessor Sammy Kailas

Notes The tin is in fair condition. The exterior of the tin is minimally scratched and dented. There is one noticeable dent along the bottom edge of the drum, and there are some brown stains along the side of the drum covering a label. The exterior is also worn away in some areas especially along the edges of the drum and lid. There are some dark orange accretions along the open metal edges but they are small in size and mostly located along the metal. The lid does not open with force, so the status of the interior of the tin is unknown.
