Default Comments on pre 39 boxes

Need some feedback on pre 39 boxes. I know they are a bit longer than the later 39 boxes and have different end markings.
They also have no white label on the end of the lid, upside down.
And the ones I have/seen/bought/sold also have the Sn. and
DA over AIR in white grease on the bottom. They also have a four hole staple on the corners.OH, and different graphics on the lid. The one I saw has no DA/AIR and five hole staples.
WOW! this is really entering the land of minutia. HEY, I got
quarantine fever. Work with me. best, Mike

The box I have for my pre39 is as described.
My only question , and forgive my lack of knowledge
but may I ask what does the air stand for?
