Smart Covers - Do they come in open-faced boxes now?

UPDATE: I have been told my memory is either fading and/or I had a counterfeit cover the first time. Apparently, the smart covers have always come in open-faced boxes.

I remember when the iPad 2 came out, the smart covers came in fully enclosed boxes, with a picture of the smart cover on the front of the box.

I just received a smart cover I ordered from the online Apple Store and I was a bit surprised that they came in see-through, open-faced boxes. Basically you see the smart cover directly inside the box.

Is the see-through box the norm now?

With all this talk about counterfeit covers, one gets a little paranoid. (Yes, I know I did order it from the Apple Store so counterfeit is probably unlikely.)

You're mistaken.
It's always been a clear plastic front that shows the real Smart Cover inside. I bought one at the iPad 2 launch.

They have always came in open-faced boxes. The blue one I got on launch did and so did the updated Dark Grey one I got a few month ago.

Are you sure you didn't get a knock off one the first time?

Fair enough. Maybe that is possible. Thanks.
