    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.

    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.
