Boxed Benjamin model G air rifle 

Spotted on Ebay in the US by D T Fletcher. He says: "First time I can recall ever seeing or hearing of a 30s era box for a model G or earlier. The gun itself certainly is showing years of hard work and the box is not really that interesting (pretty obvious now why we don't see these early boxes)  but it's there and it's rare."
