A guy who sold it to me (at a neat gun show in Unadilla,NY) said it was rare. Is it?
Not in Russia.
So, since, according to our Moscow friends, practically nothing resembling ammo moves to either side of Russian border, it would make this box “un-common” in the rest of the world, at least until they bring Lenin back.
Some similar “Match” and commercial boxes have been sold on the open market here recently.
Empty boxes are no problem to my knowledge.
Here some vartiations of that one.
