HB Stein With Tobacco Advertisement Inside Lid

Pictured is a fairly uncommon HB stein that I recently picked up. It  most likely dates from early-1900, and bears the marking of CH. Reck from Munich (in business circa. 1893-1930) on the side of the stem just below the hinge, as can be see in the last photo. The lid is pewter with what appears to be porcelain in the centre bearing the HB logo. On the inside of the lid, is the advertisement for Regie Virginier; which is a toabacco company I believe in Austria. I have seen a handful of HB steins in this style and a couple of them have slight variations from the one that I have.
