    The clear tape on the bottom of one suggests it was open and I'd bet the guy just looked at the headstamps before closing the box back up.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    Sorry for the late reply, I have been attending to family issues..

    The Tape was added by me, the tip of the rounds were ripping through the bottom of the boxes.
    I plan on opening up one of the worst boxes I have thats falling apart and I will take pictures of the headstamp soon.

    Good original ammo. Since the box isn't date stamped we will need to see the headstamp.
