Box Condition

This is the first issue in a flap style carded pictorial box. It has the later matching cut slits to the tabs. A heavy model for such a box. However matters were not improved when the later releases came in bubble pack containers.

Complete with all flaps and no tears or repairs. Some lighter age wear only but a good box.
