I think these were U.S. labels, made to sell in the U.S., with Camden, N.J. on the label and the conditions specifying
a minimum sale price of 60c each in the U.S.  However, I have no idea what the Japanese text says.



To me, they don't look all that different from US labels. I wonder if 
the words "Grand Prize" are somewhere in Japanese?
