White House humidor

Got this White House humidor....Huge and seems to be well built, no cigar smell so I guess it was never used (or it leaked so bad that not even the smell stayed, let alone the humidity )
I would appreciate if anybody has any idea or info about it that can share. Did a google search but not much came out, besides some ebay and antique site.

From what I was able to find out, it appears that Altadis sold this humidor, as well as a few others based on different buildings/monuments as part of an "American Heritage" series of humidors. Original MSRP for the various humidors seemed to range between $1,000-$1,500 but I'm not seeing what would make them worth that amount. Hard to tell construction/quality from photos, but it at least appears that they use SC throughout and use a beveled edge for the lid seal.

Looks pretty sweet! Hopefully it'll do you well! Did you buy it or was it gifted to you?

Working too hard results in having less time to smoke cigars...

Thanks for your response...really appreciate it. Buddy of mine had it in his garage and did not want to drag it from FL to NC when moving, so ended up in my office.
Will start the seasoning and if after a month does not hold it will be a big, heavy and nice box to keep my cutter and two lighters.

Dang, considering how much they cost, that must be one heck of a friend, haha. I'll admit the detail they put into the replica is fairly impressive. It'll likely hold humidity just fine, but I'd chuckle a bit every time I pulled a cigar out, hahaha.
