Summary Good

Assessor Christine Jankowski

Notes The box is tarnishing around the edges and on the bottom of the box. The lid has areas where paint has been chipped off and reveals the metal underneath. It is unclear which of the wax pieces inside truly belong to the box because of the broken pieces and the different colors.
