None of the usual chipping head-on, showing that this truck has had careful handling only.
Both plastic bins are present, complete with removable lids.
As is often the case, the black plastic wheels have reacted a little to the tyres.
The end flap style box with a white background is clean and bright. A small area of surface loss (to the white background) where a price label was removed at some time (similarly on an end flap too).
