Cigars, Anyone?

Five cents for a cigar. (back when?) Probably after 1910, since before that paper stamps were used.

Hope I am not breaking the law! But my cigar box is empty.

Found it in a flea market booth for a couple of dollars a couple of years ago.

I am not sure, but I think the cigar company was in Pittsburgh.

And I believe this box is probably well over 50 years old.

Wish I knew what all the pencil scribbling and tallies on the inside box lid stood for.

Cuban? Beats me!
