Lightbulb Handwritten word on inside of cigar band?

Hey everyone,

Just finished a JFR Lunatic El Chiquito and noticed something strange on the inside of the band. On the inside, in pencil there appears to be the word "sol" written by hand. Thanks to my high school Spanish classes, I know that means "sun".
Was wondering why that would be written there? If I had to guess maybe it's in reference to sun grown? The JFR has a habano wrapper so I'm thinking it's possible to designate between that wrapper and the maduro line of JFR?
Or - maybe it's some kind of Willy Wonka-esque golden ticket? Meaning, I can now bask in the "sol" as I enjoy your lifetime supply of Casa Fernandez cigars? (I'm really hoping it's the latter...)
I'm sure it's probably more common than I realize, but figured I'd post it and see what you guys think the reason might be....and also so it doesn't keep me up at night!

I've seen it many times.

I think the last part is an exclamation point....it says "So!"

Talking Re: Handwritten word on inside of cigar band?

Haha thanks for the input everyone, good stuff...yeah I've seen lots of brand website addresses, etc printed by different companies inside the label, but this is the first time I've come across something hand written! Kind of cool though, will have to keep an eye out for more
