Description

Conditions

Date JUL 4,2014

Summary Fair

Assessor SK

Notes The cooler is in fair condition. The exterior surface of paint is flaking and chipping. The bottom of the cooler is dented along all four sides and it looks like there was some repair work done due to the varying color of red paint along the bottom. There are also two holes in opposite sides of the base which could've been used for a larger handle for the cooler, but the handle is missing.
