Size: 17.75 x 10.25 x 6.5 inches.
Weight: 5.4 kg (allow 6.5 kg once packed).
Reasonable condition for its age - various superficial marks & scratches, some edge trim is missing, no inner parts present and there are some white marks on front which should clean up if preferred - in raw condition.
Nevertheless, a sturdy box.
