Government expense without cost to the contractor who loaded the

contractor except where deterioration has occured as a direct result
of carelessness in handling, storage, etc., permitted while the
primer lots were under the jurisdiction of either contractor.

safe to transport provided no evidence exists of loose powder or
composition in the box, or missing, loose or protruding primers.

provided the top seal has not been broken by movement or
displacement of the top, or the case side has not been distorted
sufficiently to prevent ejection of the star assembly.
