I bought this wooden cigar box at an estate sale today. The box print reads Ott's famous Silver Ash Oldest Cigar Manufacturer on Long Island
Louis Ott & Son 86-12 Jamaica Ave. Woodhaven, N.Y.
Tel Virginia 6-9380 No zipcode no zone # no area code. The cigars sold for 10 cents and the bottom states the cigars were made to sell "at more than 8 cents each and not more than 15 cents each and are so tax paid."The corners of the box are rounded with dovetails and the bottom is secure with small nails.
The stamps are series 124 class E 50 cigars and the other stamp is from the Cigar Makers International Union of America A.F. of L.
Pretty cool. Anymore info would be welcome.
