Anyone old enough to remember?

I have this AA box that an "old guy" gave me years ago. I only remember the dark brown or black AA boxes. Anyone have an idea when this style of box was used?

When I was buying AAs in the late 60s early 70s they were in those white boxes.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

I graduated high school in '81. I probably saw this style but didn't pay much attention.

Pretty sure I remember those boxes as late as 1983.

Thanks, just curious. I guess the box must be at least 30 years old.

I don't know if they are selling any at these prices, but they are listed on e-bay for $ 4.00 - $ 10.00 (empty box).

I will keep it "just because". It is not perfect either, there is some handwriting on it.
