Looks like 1950s or late 40s. They are old enough to have grandchildren and maybe Great Grandchildren to boot! If there is no Zip Code in the address, it's prior to 1963.

That box may have made it into the early sixties. The first generation Remington plastics were limited to 12 gauge. Plastic .410s were probably 1964 or even later.
