Summary Fair Condition

Assessor Nicole Burdick

Notes Glass bottle itself is in good condition, it is clear and clean - free of any scratches or chips. The front label is faded, stained, and torn toward the top and is kept on by two strips of tape placed at the top and bottom of the label. The back label is intact but is worn around the edges and has a few small areas where the color or text has been ripped off. The black metal lid is free of any rust, scratches, or dents.
