110 Year old pack of Cigarettes. Pin Head

A friend of mine owns a 17th Century hotel. Part of the building was recently broken down for a new wing. This old packet of cigarettes was found duing the exercise. Pack says Patented 1886, which was about the time the hotel was built.
Pack of 10, much smaller than the modern packs.




Notice....The manufacturer of the Cigarettes herein contained has complied with all the requirements of law. Every person is cautioned not to use either this package for cigarettes again or the stamp thereon again, nor to remove the contents of this package, without destroying said stamp under the penalties provided by law in such cases.

My husband just found a used soft pack of Camels in the ceiling of a bathroom in our 1937-built home. The first thing I noticed about it was the legal notice on the side panel of the pack - it's identical to the one on your Pin Head label. Biggest concern back the was counterfeit tax stamps!!

I was wondering if you would consider selling them?
