In the 1940s, Liggett & Myers created an annual promotional publication titled Tobaccoland. One entry reads, "Regularly employed by Liggett & Myers Tobacco Company for handling leaf tobacco and in the manufacture of Chesterfields, are more than thirteen thousand men and women, whose length of service averages better than ten years. Each day a Chesterfield messenger goes to Durham's new Federal Building with a certified check for approximately a quarter of a million dollars. This check is to purchase the revenue stamps needed for a single day's output at the Durham facilities."
