Unlike in 2006, the bottom edge of the FB is visible, and has no cement stuck to it, so the condition is good.

I'm tempted to call this slightly damaged as the bottom edge is below pavement level and the FB does have some cement stuck to it's face. Otherwise a fairly easy find next to a letterbox. http://maps.jochta.com/benchmarks.php?id=35
