    Description

    1910 "Polar Bear" Chewing & Smoking Paper Tobacco Pouch. Polar Bear tobacco was the one brand where cards didn't come snugly fit inside 10-count cigarette packs. This tobacco was marketed to tobacco chewers and pipe smokers. The cards "floated" inside this pouch totally exposed to the tobacco which is why 99% of the T205 and T206 today have some amount of staining. The larger-size paper pouch measures 3-1/2" x 5" 1-1/4" and comes complete with contents. There is a partial split along the top edge with some tobacco escaping. The tax stamp is only partially complete but the center portion with the "1910" date is showing. Very-good to excellent overall condition.
