Can anyone post a pic of the ammo boxes Winchester used in 1958. Greatly appreciated before I buy the wrong era.

I’m assuming the yellow Super X boxes.

I believe this is the style box Winchester used from 1946 to 1958:

I believe the yellow super speed boxes are from the 1960's, but I'll need to look in Giles and Shuey's book for exact years later when I get home.

Unfortunately the Giles and Shuey book only covers the years 1856 thru 1956.  I can only assume the yellow super speed boxes ran from the late 1950's thru the 1960's.  Perhaps a more knowledgeable collector on the forum will have a better idea a of the exact dates.

 If I remember rightly,the yellow boxes were in use to about 1972 or 3, when they were replaced with the white boxes.
