It is an empty 25 round "Western Popper-Load" 12 gauge shotgun shell box. The shell load information (25 SHELLS - 12 GA. - 2 3/4" - XP12FBL - SMOKELESS BLANK SHELLS) is printed on the top of the box. There is fantastic wildlife artwork on the front of the box.
These shotgun shells were produced by Winchester - Western Division - New Haven, CT 06511, East Alton, IL 62024 - Made in U.S.A.
This box is clean and solid. It does have some small creases and average wear. There are a couple of larger creases on the top of the box. There is some heavier wear on the top and sides of the box. The box's color is still fairly bright! Overall, this box is still in pretty good condition for its age!
