This thread started by Case, is the prime source of information for this one:

Black and Gold woman's presentation case from 1945, per the papers that came with it. The papers, shown here, are copyrighted 1941.


Of note, and I owe the credit to Cary for these observations: The cream and red are far more common. He suggested that the black boxes, which are not as commonly seen were for solid gold models.

Lastly... I don't collect boxes or generally go out of my way to pick them up. I specifically got this one for the papers.

All I know is based on hard work & writing by others. I can only aspire to augment this body of knowledge. If I am wrong it is because of my own failings. -me
