I bought this beautiful old dynamite box to store and display some of my favorite records. The sellers pictures were perfect, describing the item in the exact detail as it arrived. Meticulously packaged for safe delivery, and shipped the day after I ordered it. The seller even provided some notes on the history of the item I purchased. Really pleased with the purchase and the experience overall!
