It is clearly shown in Fig. 2 thatscore lines ll are provided throughout all the tray wall portions. The paper board ultimately forming tray in is preferably provided with parallel rouletted lines as part of the stamping operation. Upon assembly of the tray, the score lines in the top, bottom and side walls of the tray, between each section, fall within a common plane, whereby to permit an operator to easily sever one tray portion, and the article contained, therein, from the remaining joined tray portions by tearing the individual portion along the weakened lines of fracture, preferably when the tray is in the 1. position shown in Fig. 2, with only one such por-,

The carton is preferably constructed of paper board or the like, but it is immaterial as towhat material is used for cover H itbeing necessary. however, that a fibrous-like material be employed for the construction of the tray l0. Cover I l hasat least one, end provided with a conventional side flap l2 and a pair of end flaps II, to provide a removable closure for the end.
Tray I0 is preferably formed from a single blank of paper board, suitably cut, folded and glued to provide a tray having upstanding side wall portions l5 and I6 and a depressed center portion 18 to provide a well 19 for reception of articles such as a spark plug 20. Side wall per- Sheet 33 is preferably cemented to the upper surface of wall portions II and ll. the sheet being also transversely rouletted, the perforations thereof being aligned with each sheet of perforations across tray ll. The transparent sheet permits display of the articles withinltray ll with-cover ll removed,
