Summary Good

Assessor SK

Notes The box is in good condition. The top flap has been opened, so I assume some straws have been used. The top edges of the box are dented and warped. There is some discoloration along the edges. An edge of the box is bending open. This box is distinguished from its similar box by the bottom of the box, which this box is not missing a bottom flap. The bottom flap is torn along an edge, but is still attached to the other flaps.
