I have what appears to be a very old small cigarbox that I cant find any info about.
Its a Reynaldo wood box with faded red binding on the edges.
On the side it has a label that says "bankers handmade long filler"
Does anybody know where info on this box can be found?
I'm wondering if this Company still exists etc.
