I would describe it as a storage box used later in time.
Probably after the 50's or 60's atleast, due to the NSN markings.
I was thinking possibly in the 80's with the A-6/87 marking on the label. Marine rebuild box?

GOOD ONE!
It's early, I missed it for a second, thinking you were serious.
No but the "CC-A" means this pistol was for the "Commander in Chief- Army"!

Are you talking about the 1911A1's pictured with the shipping crate and cardboard storage boxes. This box raises the question of how many different types of storage boxes were used? the AR article storage boxes have a flap type closure taped across the center. Also looks like the pistols had a foil type wrapper.
The box I received has a lid type closure. Upon closer inspection of the label, there are remnants of the box having another label beneath it. Looks like the box was used a couple different times, additionally the remains of the cellophane type tape top center of the box point to this.

I added a few more pics where you can faintly see a serial number on the covered label.

I would much rather have had the cardboard box to mine than the plastic case, but I'm still just damn glad to have the pistol. CMP did me right.
