FOR SALE: RARE STAMP collectors cross collectible cigarette box triple sealed with 3 stamps: U.S. Customs 1910; Egyptian Export "36"; and Internal Revenue Class A - 10" with a picture of DeWitt Clinton. These are MINT and on the back of a MINT, completely sealed cigarette box from Cairo. "Dimitrino & Co.". The small cardboard box has papered labels and coverings all around. The packaging is expensive, and exotic. These were obviously a high end item. 3 x 2 3/4 x 1/2H.

3) U.S. Treasury tax stamp "Class A 10", but with no indication of series.

Condition: Mint, Mint, Mint, and Mint.
