    Made a hole in my upstairs closet so I could get access to the crawlspace. Found a lucky strikes cigarette carton which says the NJ cigarette tax was 3 cents.. Anybody from NJ who remembers approx how long ago has it been since the cig. tax was 3 cents? Just curious...

    House isn't older than 1950s I think...

    New Jersey is one the heaviest on cig tax. I'll bet that carton is from the 60's.

    Does it have any green Jay? Green would put it pre WWII.

    Nah, it's not a carton but just a pack.

    It is encased in a plastic wrap and on the bottom is stamped in red ink that says "New Jersey" and has a long series of numbers which I guess is the license number and on the sides it says 3 cents and on the bottom it says "cigarette tax". The pack is kind of crumpled but is in OK shape.

    I believe the house dates back to the 1950s based on what the seller told me and he isn't the original owner either.
