Rare WHITE Prototype 1963 Rocky Bullwinkle Lunch Kit SPACE Alien LUNCH BOX toy

Very rare WHITE vinyl version of the 1963 Bullwinkle in space lunch kit.
It is believed the white version was not issued for regular production.
Very nice with bright graphics. No splits in the vinyl. Light corrosion on the metal rivets and latch. Surface hairline scratches and dirt to the white vinyl. We gave the box a very gentle wipe down (it was very dirty when discovered) and it could benefit from a more thorough cleaning.
