Tobacco Shipping Crate

Description (Brief)
This is an end panel of a Lucky Strike tobacco shipping crate. Founded in 1871, Lucky Strike was manufactured by the R.A. Patterson Tobacco Company. Initially, the company sold Lucky Strike as plug tobacco (chewing tobacco bound together with molasses), but after Patterson was purchased by the American Tobacco Company in 1905 Lucky Strike became their signature cigarette brand.
