The front of the manual shows a seal in the center that reads: "NARCOTICS MANUAL COMPILED BY THE CUSTOMS AGENCY SERVICE FOR THE CONFIDENTIAL AND EXCLUSIVE USE OF TREASURY INVESTIGATIVE AGENCIES WASHINGTON, D. C. 1937" and shows the serial number: "1358" stamped in the top right corner and pencil marks on the opposite.
