I've been helped on this one by John and Karen from VINT2 jks.... this little beauty is apparently from around the World War Two era....not earlier as I had first thought. It is just 3" in length and is close to MINT Condition. There is a name on the inner tube...REDILITE with a US Patent number. The advertising states.....US ARMY SMOKES RALEIGH CIGARETTES.....WOW !... the tobacco companies would sure like that sort of endorsement these days wouldn't they what !!
