I have these boxes. The shells have long since been shot, but I love the boxes and have them on display on a bookshelf in my living room.

Anyone know how old these are? My google-fu has told me anywhere from the late fifties to the early seventies. I have a 1959 Remington 878 Automaster and these boxes would make a great background for photos of the shotgun if they are period correct.

Recall having that green and yellow box around 1969. Had a .410 back then for rabbit.

The red box is slightly older, I believe. The green and yellow probably late 1970s or 1980s.

Very nice look for photography of same period guns.
