The biggest giveaway being that the sign box lettering is out of alignment with the P being slightly raised in comparison to the rest of the text. It's like it on both the sleeve/record photo and the title picture. The photo used on the sleeve looks to me as being the same photo used in the titles...The auction model doesn't seem to have this feature; however this could just be down to the side that has been photographed. The rest of the box seems to match though. I've got a couple of other small photos of the auction box somewhere, I'll dig them out and post them for comparison.I'm sure we had the same discussion in the mid 2000's and we identified the box as being the one in the titles.The Shawcraft box centre divide doesn't extend all the way through the sign box steps like the auction box version does. It's clearly not the same box (although by complete coincidence it was used on the Theme music single cover in the early 70's).

To my mind they are the same model...with you on that, they are definately the same model (I also think the same model is used during episode 4 of the Claws of Axos when the TARDIS escapes the timeloop)I'm just wondering if it got knocked about and refurbed after that...?
