Despite those minor flaws, the central image area of the lid is free of any significant flaws and the box has an overall Excellent appearance. The underwear is in Mint condition. This is an outstanding overall example of this classic Ruth collectible. Box dimensions: 9.75 x 9.75 x 2 inches. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
