Default New 3X plugs

Do they come apart like the old ones I have?

Are the new 3X plugs Made In USA? The ones I have are but I don't know when they were made.Box and instructions look old.I bought them on Ebay a while ago just because I needed Model A plugs not for show.

looking at the box, are the ends of the box red and white, or blue and white. the original is red and white. also does it say for Model A ford or for Model A and B? the original will only have for Model A ford. I run original plugs in my Victoria and repro`s in my four door. and they both run good on them.

I'm sure mine are repro's. The box is blue and white, for Models A,B and the plugs have the flat top "3". I paid $19 each for this set on Amazon.com
