This is a lengthy story, so bear with me. A friend of mine has a box of R&J #4 from nov 04 (Iwill post the factory code later) Everything checked out in this box, but as we all know thats not even a guarantee anymore. We were suspicious cause it was bought in the Bahamas by a friend of his.They are supposedly bought from a shop over there. So he says to me lets do a box split on R&J from your vendor so we can compare the cigars. When the box arrived it was marked as feb05, the seal and everything else checked out but we noticed that the older box had the gold medals raised a lot more than my box. So the question is wether or not this raised medals changed in design from 04 to 05 to a barely noticeable raised medal. I have to favor my vendor, since it is used by some very knowledgeable BOTLs in here, and haven't had any problems with them in the short time I have been using them, instead of some friend of a friend that don't know jack about cuban cigars. However I was intrigued by this difference in the boxes and wanted to find out if there had been a change. Thanks in advance!
