E.23.38 Intact, it is clear from the top and bottom part of the artefact that it has been removed from a larger object, since they appear to be thinner than the rest of the object and therefore look like 'connectors' of some kind.

E.47.6.7 Intact and complete, very shallow scratches all over the object. 2002.98.0093.jpg

E.62.42 Single fragment intact and well preserved although it is unclear how much of the original object is preserved.
E.62.48 Intact if only a fragment. The glyphs are still very clear, except one of the right hand side, the fourt glyph down, that has been rubbed away. There is also a white deposit at the bottom of the object on the right. Overall there has been very little degredation of the wood. 2007.01.0070.jpg
E.62.51 Intact. On the underside the wood is apparently water damaged and there is some rotting at the end of the cobra where it presumably once joined to the larger object (crown). There is a large crack on the underside near the very top head of the cobra. 2008.08.0279.jpg
E.62.52 Intact. There are chips all over the object, some that just remove paint others that take some wood as well, particularly on the the left side of the beetle its self. There is a large white deposit on the right wing whcih has collected where some paint has chipped away. 2007.99.0110.jpg
E.65.11 Intact. Small area of polished metal showing through on rectangular extension but not reflective. Major discolouration and deterioration to the surface of both sides. Small surface scratches. Does not sit flat so the object must be slightly bent. 2008.08.0017.jpg
