The only thing keeping me from giving this a full five-star rating is the fact that this is aimed at the completist but leaves some holes.
First 19 discs are mono. Fine, because I'm sure most heard these albums in mono at that time. But then you get to the 62nd disc (Singles) where the compilers break consistency by going with stereo when it was an option. Despite that fact that Cash's singles up through 1970 were mono (I believe "What is Truth" was the first stereo.) By my count there's only maybe 4 true mono mixes on that disc, a couple sound close to mono but could be narrow stereo with some weird phasing problems.

As a completist I would've loved having both stereo and mono mixes on each disc for albums that were released in both forms. Singles all mono where originally released that way. Stereo's no biggie since I'm sure most of the cuts on disc 62 weren't mixed for stereo until the Bear Family boxes. (In a strange turn of events this set, not Bear Family, has "Rosanna's Going Wild" in stereo, so there's a stealth rarity here for you...)

Anyway, overlooking these little gripes there's a LOT of quality music here to delve into. Some not as high of quality as others but when you've cranked out that many albums there's going to be some QC issues now and then.

a complete scan of the box and all cd labels and covers would be great

Regarding CD #15 - 'Johnny Cash Sings The Ballads Of The True West'. There are 6 tracks are comprised of 'narrations' (tracks 4, 7, 9, 12, 20 and 23) and a un/mis-titled track (track 24 'Stampede'). These have the effect, if for some reason you need to copy the CD, of putting tracks out of order and listing 6 [untitled] at the end of the CD, as seen from the copying software. So the true track listing of this CD (Johnny Cash Sings The Ballads Of The True West/ The Complete Columbia Album Collection) is thus :

1-Hiawatha's Vision
2-The Road to Kaintuck
3-The Shifting, Whispering Sands, Pt. 1
4-Narration 1
5-The Ballad Of Boot Hill
6-I Ride An Old Paint
7-Narration 2
8-Hardin Wouldn't Run
9-Narration 3
10-Mister Garfield
11-The Streets Of Laredo
12-Narration 4
13-Johnny Reb
14-A Letter From Home
15-Bury Me Not On The Lone Prairie
16-Mean As Hell
17-Sam Hall
18-25 Minutes To Go
19-The Blizzard
20-Narration 5
21-Sweet Betsy From Pike
22-Green Grow The Lilacs
23-Narration 6
25-The Shifting, Whispering Sands - Part II
