Hard plastic flip top box in very scarce mottled dark raspberry color. These boxes were paired by Hamilton with Grade 992B and Grade 950B railroad watches, and the vast majority of the boxes were a light ivory color but a much smaller fraction were made in a range of other colors such as this.Box is marked "Hamilton" to its upper lid, and front of box has a foil Hamilton marked factory crest. Upper lid of this box is a somewhat darker raspberry tone than lower portion, but this is not unusual to this mottled color style. Very attractive box in excellent overall condition.
Exterior shows little wear, the foil Hamilton seal is present, and there is only a mild small surface flake to the lower rear corner of the upper lid. Box has padded dark blue velvet inserts and a blue velvet lid liner, and I think both these inserts and the liner are likely later replacements.
