This work is in good condition. The tin sheet undulates throughout, and shows signs of wear towards the outer edges and corner tips. There are small holes and losses in places along the edges where the sheet has been attached, which are likely to be original. Close inspection reveals some unobtrusive media accretions scattered throughout. Further close inspection reveals some small losses and cracks to the paint in isolated places. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultraviolet light. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
