The picture shows a front and back view of this Full Old Bag of Bull Durham Tobacco with Label & Tag. The bag of tobacco is not dated but it has a 1926 Internal Revenue Stamp on it. The stamp seal is broken, but it still full of the old tobacco. Please read the following:

The cloth bag has a drawstring with a tag and there is a paper label on the bag. The label pictures a bull and it is marked as follows:

GENUINE

(TRADE MARK)
SMOKING TOBACCO
W. T. BLACKWELL & CO.
(BLACKWELL'S DURHAM TOB. CO., Suc'r.)
DURHAM, N.C.

The paper tag pictures a bull on one side and a Native American Indian on the other. The two sides read as follows:

NONE GENUINE WITHOUT THE BULL ON EACH PACKAGE
GURANTEED BY THE AMERICAN TOBACCO CO. INCORPORATED
WHICH MEANS THAT IF THIS PACKAGE FOR ANY REASON IS UNSATISFACTORY YOU CAN GET YOUR MONEY BACK FROM THE DEALER.

The full cloth bag measures about 3-3/4'' tall. It is in very good condition with wear to the label and stamp as pictured. Below here, for reference is some information found on the History of Bull Durham Tobacco:

Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 22, 1977):
From 1874 to 1957, this factory was the home of Bull Durham Smoking Tobacco, the first truly national tobacco brand. At one time this building, where tobacco was manufactured, bagged and labeled, was considered the world's largest tobacco factory. W. T. Blackwell and Company introduced production, packaging, and marketing techniques that made Bull Durham a part of American industrial history and folklore.

Durham, North Carolina
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

History

Durham originated in 1853 with the search for a suitable railroad depot for the North Carolina Railroad between Raleigh and Hillsborough. The wood-burning steam locomotives of the time had to stop frequently to refuel, and depots supplying wood and water could not be more than 25 - 30miles apart.

A post office known as Herndon's existed in the area from 1827, and another at nearby Prattsburg was established in 1836. The landowners at Prattsburg refused to sell land to the railroad. Somewhat further to the northwest, a country physician named Bartlett S. Durham lived and practiced along the route. He donated land to the railroad, which named the subsequent depot Durham Station. Prior to the arrival of the railroad, the area now known as Durham was almost entirely agricultural, with a few businesses catering to travelers (particularly livestock drivers) along the Hillsborough Road. This road, eventually followed by US Route 70, was the major east-west route in North Carolina from colonial times until the construction of interstate highways.

The town grew slowly before the Civil War, but grew rapidly following the war; the present city charter dates from 1869. Much of this growth can be attributed to the establishment of a thriving tobacco industry. Soldiers, both Union and Confederate, were encamped at Bennett Place, just outside the town, during surrender proceedings. During their long encampment, they liberally sampled the area's Brightleaf Tobacco, which purportedly had a milder flavor than other tobacco varieties. After returning to their homes, numerous orders were mailed to Green's tobacco company requesting more of the Durham tobacco. W. T. Blackwell would partner with Green, and rename the company the ''Bull Durham Tobacco Company''. The name ''Bull Durham'' is said to have been taken from the bull on the British Colman's Mustard, which Mr. Blackwell (mistakenly) believed was manufactured in Durham, England.
