Summary Poor

Assessor Sammy Kailas

Notes The canister is in poor condition. The exterior of the canister has scratches including a long scratch down through the front label. There is also a dark orange accretion along the bottom rim of the canister and more circular accretions up the side, which could indicate rust. The bottom rim also has some discoloration where the color of the drum is significantly lighter along the rim. The top of the canister has some very dark brown accretions.
