The company info is: 中国土产畜产云南茶叶进出口公司 (if you want to take that to google translate) , it is CNNP / Zhongcha (*edit: Or that is the name they are using, could be anybody, since it is just a wrapper)

Founded in 1938.

It also makes the claim that it was "delicately made, tastes thick and sweet, and will help you cool down in hot weather" , or something like that.

Thanks twodog2, I got it from a reliable source so I an not worried about the authenticity seems to be around grade 4 and yes it is "thick and sweet". I can't claim any knowledge of the other claims though. it is a nice sheng with the final throws of youth fading away... was rather hoping for a date on the wrapper but none the less that doesn't effect the enjoyment I have gotten out of it.
