That box is a keeper. Looks to be 100% too. I sure would like to find one in that condition.  Big Larry

Pretty darn close, has one little crease where someone open it, and it’s a full box! I think  I got lucky on this one.

Great!  You've got enough to test fire some for accuracy!Laugh

Are the cases copper or brass?

Maybe that means they were early production for that box, because after the introduction of high velocity loads in 1931 by Remington, all the ammo companies gradually changed their RF cases to brass--even for standard vel. loads.
