Post 38/44 HD original ammo

Could some of you ammo collectors please post pictures of original ammo boxes for 38/44 HD's. My two are widely spaced, the 5" shipped in December 1930 and my 38/44 HD Model of 1950 pre Model 20, 4" which was obviously manufactured in the early 50's, but not shipped until 1961. As someone said "In those days, everybody had "magnumitis". I would like to have some of this ammo for photographic purposes. I really want to purchase some, but before I do, I need to know what I am looking for.

There are several threads addressing this over the last couple of years; here is one of the most recent.
