Is this the right case?

first off, this was a good find on the bay. The description was vague, the only pic was very blurry and the seller didn't seem to be an experienced razor seller. I had a hunch what it was so put in a very low bid and won it almost uncontested. When it arrived home my hunch was right, it was a cased TV Special!! Some scrubbing bubbles got it to a near excellent condition.

Info on the bottom says:
RAZOR PAT: 2,562,115
CASE PAT DES: 165,346
MADE IN USA
REG U.S. PAT. OFF MARCAS REGISTRADAS
Gillette logo and Boston Mass etc.
There is also R5 off to the right side.

However, I think it is the incorrect case for a D2 razor. So, if it is the wrong case, what year and what razor should this be with?
So, some pics?

for comparison, here are a few pics of another cased D2 TV Special that I bought from a respected B&B'er. You can see the "TV" raised right on the lid.
