OG Xbox Cases

Hello All,

Recently started to collect OG Xbox games and consoles, and I've come across something interesting, to which no one seems to know the answer.

I bought a couple of factory sealed copies of Madden 05 recently on eBay, and noticed something odd about one of the cases... the outer portion where you open the case has two brackets near the center (see images via the links below).  Every other game I've picked up at local gaming shops, or online via eBay have not had this case design.

The color of case looks spot on relative to the rest of my games, and everything else looks authentic, and the game is in new condition and plays perfectly.  It even had the official seal and legit factory plastic around the case.

Has anyone ever come across these case styles? Are they OEM? Worried that I got scammed a bit... though, the games weren't overly expensive to begin with.  I've kept a couple sealed, but I can feel that none of the others have this bracket.

Any thoughts?

Based on the 1st Pic https://ibb.co/6nTgcPR  it looks like these cases were designed to have the protection lock installed if required.

They would slip in a locking clip that stopped the cover from being opened.  Basically to stop people stealing the contents. 

It would deter people from also stealing the entire thing from the shop as the security tag was part of the clip..

Not fool proof but enough to stop honest thieves..

Interesting, never thought of that.  Just odd to me that there are so many different variations of these cases.
