It is in good overall condition, showing the early “old time” graphics and a picture of a cartridge on the end of the box. Although, the top green label shows edge wear and soiling, it is fully intact and readable. The box is solid with repaired seam splits to the top and bottom. All of the red side wrap is still intact and in good condition. The reloading label on the inside of the lid is very good and fully readable. In addition, the cartridges are un-touched. Also, in very good condition.
