Subject: Cigarettes

I've had a query from a small museum about how to number a pack of
cigarettes from the 1940s.  The cellophane is still intact except for one
area.  It would be possible to write a number on the paper at that point,
otherwise there seems no way to apply a reversible number.  Also, there
is no evidence of infestation, but should it be considered after all of
these years? Any suggestions are welcome.
