Summary Fair

Assessor Christine Jankowski

Notes The cardboard has been waterlogged and there is mold all over. There are only five tools left in the display: a nail file, the metal nail files, and two small nail clippers. All three nail files do not belong to the set, but the metal ones are still Trim brand. The metal on the clippers and files have started to rust.
