Esso paper labels are bright and complete (light wear).
Little of the original factory glue on the headlight surrounds. Barely a mark to the paint finish.
The attractive end flap picture box is a more unusual find and generally more desirable than the later bubble pack issues. Bright intact card shows little wear.
With card packing piece.
