I agree with Rick regarding the T215 cards.

The T215-1 cards were printed by American Lithographic in New York. Then shipped to the Lorillard plant in Jersey City, NJ (Factory #10) to be inserted in RED CROSS
Cigarette packs.

Founded in 1760, Lorillard is the oldest continuously operating tobacco company in the US. It has marketed its tobacco products through out the USA and Great Britain.
Where these cigarettes were marketed in the 1910-1912 era, I'm not sure that I know.

The large "Louisiana find" some years back could have been due to an original collection which was relocated from some where else in the US.
