Was given this box but not sure what to make of it. I read the one article and it doesn’t look like one in the pic but was sure if it is a different kind. Can you help?
The seal looks good, cohiba is printed in raised letters, but the box is sealed in plastic, and has a hologram on it.

It looks okay. Was it bought from a Casa del Habanos? Ask the guys at http://FriendsOfHabanos.com

im not sure where it was bought and woundnt have access to that info. so the fact that it is sealed in plastic not in wax paper is ok? and the post also said that the box with the hologram was a fake. this one has a hologram on it. i tried to get the best pic possible of it.

Although I have smoked a lot of cuban cigars, all bought in Cuba, I am no expert. All I know is that the cigars bought in the streets of Havana are all fake even if some taste great. They will come in the exact same box with all the papers and stickers. The bill (factura) they give you is fake. The only thing I find a bit strange is that those cohibas are “Churchills”. I have a yearly guide of Habanos here and they don’t have those Churchills from Cohiba. As far as I know, Romeo Y Julieta are the only Churchills. Maybe it is something new.
