Leon, That is what I thought as all my others are Sweet Caporal either Factory 25 or 42. This one says:

"The Whitehead&Hoag Co.
Newark, N.J.
Then the Union stamp
"Allied PrintingTrades Union Council " 3 outside the label
Label
"Newark, N.J."
"patented
July 17 1894

April 14, 1896 July 21, 1896"

Given the Sweet Caporal are 1910-12, I was wondering if maybe this was a promotion of some sort by Whitehead & Hoag. Guess I will have to do some more research on this company.

Thanks.

Jim
