Default WTB: .38/.44 HD pre-war box

I'm considering trying to find a box for my heirloom pre-war .38/.44 HD. I currently have one half of the box, just don't remember what half. I doubt anyone has one sitting around, but if one exists, or half of one exists what would the cost of such an item be? I'm starting to look for one.

If you are seeking a "patent or display" box, I had one repaired in 2008. It took four months and cost $285. See "before" photographs below. If you find one in good condition, labeled for a 38-44, it will most likely cost big $$.

It was numbered to this unfired and pristine HD, otherwise I would have never went to the expense:
