Looks to me like one I have with a red scoreboard in it - in those days the fence surround was nothing more than a few brass clips and a piece of string! (got one of those boxed too)

I think they used up those old brown box's like any business would...have seen various early C range accessories turn up in those types of box's.

Like Number 9 said...could also be the red or early green scoreboard...or something else...who knows.

Here's a pic of red scoreboard and box.

I've got a couple of spare FA cup bodies (no plinth or lid) if you want to restore those broken cups.

Looks like a postage outer for a C100 team. Does a team box fit in it snugly ?

Not Subbuteo as such - just bought in from some generic supplier.
