Description

Smoke 'em if you got 'em! Such is the sentiment in the offered collection of (39) vintage cigarette packages and holders. From an era during which tobacco products were decidedly chic (for both men and women), these labels and images are sure to conjure up thoughts of black-and-white movies, day baseball and other fashions of the early 20th century. Most, of course, are empty and average (VG-EX) condition. Off brands and Turkish labels are prevalent. Highlights include (5) sturdy tins with hinged covers, an unopened (seal unbroken) satchel of “Dukes” cigarettes and a full box of (10) “Turkish Trophies” (box lid is VG, but fully functional).

Other brands include: Asuf, Capstan Navy Cut, Cross Cut, Duke's Best, Egyptienne Luxury, Egyptienne Straights, Four Aces, Gold Flake, Helmar, Mayo's, Mecca, Mogul Cigarettes, Murad, Ramleh, Recruit Little Cigars, Richmond Straight Cut, Schinasi Bros., Sweet Caporal, Virginia Brights, Virginia Leaf and Wild Woodbine.
