Box insert ink bleed through

Recommended Posts

I've come across a few boxes with uneven ink stamps on the pressed in brands.  I know they used to all be burnt in but some have ink now.  My question is on a July 18 partagas lusi 50 cab I've seen this sloppy of a brand on the outside of a part es2 5 box before.  Serial and other normal flags check out.  Sticks look and smell great.  Cedar insert stamp was messy and appears ink bled through.

I was just curious if others have seen this shoddy of craftsmanship on the cedar insert stamp, or if this is a red flag for suspicion.  Not sure why this would be the spot to cut corners

Thanks for any feed back and experience.

I’ve got a box of CoRo where the cedar insert ink work looks like it was done by a fourth grader. Really sloppy. The box is 100% legitimate. I don’t think it’s cause for concern if everything else checks out.

Solid.  Thanks!  I wasnt too concerned as everything else checked out and the smell great but it was a new one for me.
