How we grade these boxes
A Grade 1 box will be the second best quality we can supply, and it will have the signs of wear. It will have a minor rust spot or two and possible flaking paint which will be buffed to show bare metal before leaving us. As a used item it will never be pristine and as it was when first manufactured, but the structure, rubber seal and locking mechanism will work as they should.
