Sealed box on K-3 Prestige?

Hi - question for those with a K-3 Prestige

I thought i remember hearing that the K-3 Prestige kits had an outer box sealed with a sticker to ensure they weren't tampered with.

I just received my K-3 and it doesn't have a sticker.

Did anyone receive a K-3 with a sealed outer box?

Thanks in advance

None of the Pentax cameras I've received in the past several years were sealed.

Have premium - but just a standard box arrangement - no sticker and no seals or anything

For peace of mind you can check the shutter release count, if you are worried it might be a return etc.
