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.

5.Is tax stamp orange on blue? If yes, it’s 1919-1939.
6.Is the tax stamp about 8” long, black on blue with portrait? If yes, it’s 1910-1915.
7.Is the tax stamp 10”+ long? If yes, it’s before 1910.
8.Is the stamp dated 1883? . If yes it dates 1883-1898.
9.Is the portrait other than Clay? If yes, it dates before 1878.
10.Is there a NRA eagle or stamp? If yes, it dates 1934-35.
