This is an original 1860 package of Cavendish tobacco which would have been available during the Civil War. Unfortunately, the paper package has a hole in it and has been repaired using tape. They did not just put tape over the hole but covered the entire item with it and obscuring some of the printing. According to American Heritage, " This tobacco was sold in a rectangular package wrapped in brown paper. Printed on the front, MINNIE-HA-HA / EXCELSIOR / CAVENDISH / TOBACCO / Manufactured by / H.L. TICKNER & CO / ANOKA / MINN."
