And clean-up of @Jake's scan is coming along nicely as well.

 

Original colors:

Approximating the box/manual colors:

It's weird how the box "feels" almost monochromatic, when there's actually still a lot of color in there. I guess the colorful artwork and design elements of the box just cause the map to become less prominent.

 

Edit: All done! 600 dpi PNG versions can be downloaded HERE.

Done!

 

I've updated the previews above and added a link, and I'll add them to the opening post eventually. This looks like a very minor cleanup, but filtering out this heavy halftone was tricky. Plus a lot of work painting out 99% of dust, dirt and scratches. Thanks @Jake for great scans and a suffering wallet.

This looks so great oh my gosh!!

 

Is it bad that I kinda like the halftones on this map a little bit? I think it's cute ahaha! And I don't exactly know if they originally took the time to filter it themselves back then, from the pictures I've seen (I unfortunately don't own a box so feel free to correct me!) they blurred the map and it has this kind of fuzzy texture to it (maybe they wanted to get rid of the halftones as well?)

Technically back then there wasn't a way to filter halftone out, short of blurring the image, so yeah, it might have been another reason why it's blurred.

 

Depending on which fuzzyness you mean though, it's either the camera noise or the halftone from printing the box.
