Ninety year old pre-Cuban embargo cigar?
Quite a few years ago I purchased a small cigar case from an antique dealer. It is a small case that holds three small cigars. I was able to date the case to circa 1919. It contained a small torpedo cigar in it. As you might imagine I assumed the cigar was just a hoax. But I'm not so sure. The cigars were called Cuban Coquettes and were rolled by a company out of Cincinnati using Cuban tobacco. I have attached pictures here and would like to know if anyone here has any information on this or can direct me to someone that might. I would really like to sell it to someone who can properly care for it or curate it to preserve the history. You can email me at: [email protected]
as I don't regularly visit these forums and am posting because I would really like to know if there is anyone out there that can help me with this. Thank you. Fernando L.
