Smile Found an old cigar box of my Grandfather's





Not sure how common or uncommon these are to find, but thought some of you might get a kick out of seeing it. My grandfather was a lifelong cigar enthusiast, however he never seemed to care to smoke premium cigars, at least not to my memory in the 90s...mostly White Owls and other brands one can find at a grocer.
I did a quick search on google and looks like these were rolled out of Lima, Ohio, will post the link to the article below!

Pretty cool piece of history. Going to do anything with it?

Yeah I think so too - particularly the 10 part, would definitely be a bulk buyer @ those prices, haha.
Haven't considered what to do with it yet though, appears to have been used to miscellaneous storage over the years, but I suppose it's a decent conversation piece if nothing else.
If I get lucky in the future and find something really nice, I'd definitely like to clean out an old box or cabinet and store some of my cigars.

I think that's awesome, Michael, a little piece of your Grandfather in a way, and something that you now love too.

That's cool. I have one from my Grandad as well. He was a cigar and pipe smoker. I'd guess he bought this box in the 40s or 50s.

Thanks Tom! Yeah I totally agree, but too bad I can't share some of the higher end cigars I enjoy these days haha.
Bill - that's an awesome box, gotta love those old catch phrases! I wonder what they meant by that though?
