CONDITION: 5+ (Fine-): The shipping box shows moderate to heavy wear, mostly around edges, the address is clear and the stamp in is moderate condition, the box has seen heavy storage/age wear, but time has only added to the character of this box. Sturdy and shows no broken corners and the lid and bottom fit nicely together.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
