Notes Fair to good condition. The box is thick and well-designed, so it is still sturdy, but it also shows considerable wear; one end has been taped shut. there was a lable on the top of the box that is white, but no longer has words. The corners and edges of the box are worn. Sounds like instructions may still be inside, but box is sealed.
