WW2 Dutch surrogate tobacco 250gr

Now and then you still can find WW2 packages of Dutch surrogate cigarettes, but this is rather unusual to find.
It is a pack of tobacco that contained 250 grams.
It is the kind meant for self rolling cigarettes.

The “amateur tabak” was not a specific brand, but was the name given to all tobacco that was home grown, dried and chopped to be smoked.
Most time the Germans allowed that people would grown there own tobacco, but these people could only bring it to specific places to be processed from raw material to actual smoking tobacco.
These processers had to charge the taxes, so the government ( read Germans) still benefited from the peoples hard labour to have something to smoke.

Pack still has its original tax label and is unopened.
However, the package material that was used in these days was from low quality paper.
This caused some tears in the package.
