The box has been OPENED and is in very good condition, showing a few professionally repaired split seams. Also, the top right corner of the top label shows a small piece missing with another label underneath???  However, the top green label is excellent and about 60% of the red side labels are still present. All the original cartridges are present and in very good condition.
