Ok, Looking at CMP Garand unboxing videos on Youtube, there is a pattern to when these cases appear. The cases used by the CMP have varied over time.

Green Case - Aug 2011 to Feb 2018
Unmarked Black case - Mar 2018
It says Flambeau on outside and is identical to tan case.
Tan Case - Jul 2018- Dec 2019
Black Case - Jan 21 to current.

The CMP may have used other undocumented cases over time, but these are pretty common.

There are 2 types of the black case. One has a hard plastic liner specifically designed for Garands. The other case is foam lined and is used with the bolt action rifles. Externally, both cases look the same.

Both of the new cases come with a blue plastic inset made by Zerust which is a rust inhibitor.
