    If found this box as well as some others in an old barn. Now this Lucky Strike box one I am unsure of some specifics on it. The "It's Toasted" slogan was first used in 1917 and there were August 1942 newspapers found inside the box. I included a couple pics of these. Apparently it is from 1942 as well per the comment below.

    Have an awesome day everyone and thank you in advance for any additional feedback you may be able to provide me on this! : )

      It is most like Lucky Strike Green Label cigarettes, which were discontinued during WWII and never brought back. So the newspaper is likely of the same era. They all match up! Very cool! You should post the newspaper too if you still have it!

      Thank you so much for the input VikingFan82. 1942 it is on all of them then. There were a bunch of newspaper portions from August 1942 not being in the best of shape. I put up a couple shots for you though. Enjoy! : )

      Hello.

      I was admiring the vintage Lucky Strike box. Is there any way that I could contact you directly with questions?
