So I went to check a box I just got and...

Does this happen a lot or is this bad juju?
I’m fairly new at this...

Wish I could help. What do the cigars look like?
I'd be concerned also, the box looks like it's been through hell.

I think some vendors rub that off intentionally.

Certainly one of the guru's around here will pipe in soon.

I know very little about identifying fake CC. That said, the water ring on lower right side and folded Habanos sticker are concerning. Especially for a new cigar. Did Bolivar do a 2018 Special Release?

Just looking at other pictures on the net yours sure seem "rough" and maybe darker. Caps look sloppy and I didn't notice any discoloration on the other boxes. Is it normal for Bolivars to have that veiny texture?

All seals pre-cut and yeah my other expert buddy says wrappers all wrong.

I think I’m done with international shippers and going back to Cuba and official stores in Canada and the Islands only. Too many fakes out there. I bet a lot even from trusted vendors (where I got these) are just good fakes that smoke well.

:(

Have you tried putting the serial number together with the micro printing on the seal and running it through habanos website. Im guessing they are real just not cream of the crop visually. Which is weird since they are LEs
