The closure panels on the top and bottom for this paperboard packaging fold in opposite directions.  The top closure panel can fold towards the front allowing for the face panel to be seen during the opening and closing of the box. 

 

A French Reverse Tuck (FRT)  has the bottom and top closure panels folding in the exact opposite directions to the RTE   so the less aesthetic raw edge is less obvious at the bottom of the box.
