Good, display-quality condition. Pack is open. See pictures for details.

Tobacco weevils often leave small holes in the packaging. Unfortunately, they are endemic to tobacco collections. I see no evidence of active weevil life on this pack, but I recommend treating it to a few days in a freezer after shipping.
