Default M36 Blue 2 Piece Box ... Value?

I came across a blue two piece Bangor Punta era box for an M36. Checking the SCoS&W, it date range is 1966 to 1980, so I believe I am in the right spot for advice.

You can see from the pictures it is in decent shape, no broken corners or oil soaking. There are two store tags on it:
Miller & Boerman Sporting Goods. With "92-" on one, which I take as the retail price.

I have no use for the box and thought I would sell it in the Classifieds. I just need to know a reasonable price. Thanks for any help.

The Chiefs Special that came in it was made in 1972, most likely, possibly the year prior.

I have no idea how to price this, but someone here will probably make a suggestion or two.

I am not sure.

I have a solid line pre-Bangor dark blue (it say's 4 of 6 written on it) that I bought at S&WCA Baton Rouge for $25. It's also has non-original markings on it (not good).

I like the older boxes. I'll add them to an offer to buy a gun or accept them as additional value when buying a gun. I do this as a hobby.

An empty box of this vintage would be in the $30-40 range to me.
