#TOP019 - Yankee Girl Chewing Tobacco Bag
Vintage 7" tall bag that says "Yankee Girl Chewing Tobacco" "Scotten, Dillon Company Detroit, MI". This is part of the items that came out of the Scotten Dillon warehouse a number of years ago. This is not a real common one and they are in excellent condition. Circa 1940s. These were bags that Scotten Dillon would supply tobacco bag stores with to put tobacco in when they sold it.
#NE020 - Tobacco Cone Picturing Black Native
Vintage 12" tall folded flat cones that were used to scoop tobacco. These are old unused stock that were found in Amsterdam, Holland. Circa 1940s. Pictures smoking black native.
#SIGN054 - Blue-Tip Cigar Fan Hanger Sign
Vintage 6 1/4" wide cardboard sign advertising Blue-Tip Cigars. This was a fan hanger sign. Fan Hangers were tied to the string of store ceiling fans (before air conditioning) and slowly turned from the breeze of the fan, and so fan hanger signs are always two sided. The signs are identical on both sides. They were just found recently in the old factory and are the only examples I know of. All have some small typical paint flaking as you can see in the picture if you look close, but you won't find any better anywhere. Circa 1930s.
#TO041 - Be-Bop Novelty Cigarette Holder Display Card with 12 Holders
Vintage 9" tall heavy cardboard cigarette holder display. The pipe holders are 4 1/2" long. It says "Be-Bop Pipe Novelty CIgarette Holders" "All Cigarette Smokers". These are from the Be-Bop era around 1950 when smoking was very popular. You put a cigarette in the holder and smoked it vertically. These are unsold stock that I pulled out of the now defunct Pressner warehouse in New York many years ago. Excellent condition. Circa 1950.
#TM071 - Full Book of front cover striker Golden Gate Casino Matches
Vintage unused full pack of front cover striker Golden Gate Casino Matches. They say "Golden Gate Casino Downtown Las Vegas" and are unused and from around the 1960s. Extremely nice condition. The Golden Gate hotel and casino has the distinction of having the address #1 Fremont street as it was the first building erected in Las Vegas. Built in 1906. We actually visited there last year when we were one vacation. They have really kept it in nice shape. Their sundae cup of shrimp for only $1 is the best deal in town. Great steaks too.
#SIGN031 - Lord Baltimore Cigar Decal
Vintage 6 1/2" wide Lord Baltimore Cigar Decal. These are a peel and stick advertising decals that were made to go on a window or door of a country store. Nice shape. Unused old factory stock. Circa 1930s.
#TM088 - Silver Club Casino Front Cover Striker Match Pack

Vintage 9" tall unused cardboard master carton. Pictures Insert Tobacco tins on the sides and says they were made to contain one dozen of the 5¢ size. Marked "John Weisert Tobacco Co. St. Louis, MO". Empty and folded flat. They have perforations so the box could be split into two counter displays, Somehow the contents of this defunct factory ended up at an auction house in Felicity, Ohio a number of years ago. We bought most of it, but it ended up burning in our warehouse fire a few years ago. We still had a small stack of these sitting around the house.
#ZLSC045 - Group of 6 Rudolph Valentino Cigar Bands
You get 6 for $3 (that's 50¢ each). Embossed and gilded cigar band labels say “Rudolph Valentino Quality Cigar”. From the mid 1920’s when Rudolph Valentino was considered the ultimate screen lover. He was idolized by the female fans of the 1920's like Elvis was in the 1950’s. He died an untimely death in 1926 at only 31 years of age (from a perforated ulcer), which probably explains why these cigar band labels were never used. These have become very difficult to find.
#SIGN066 - Smoke 54 Tobacco Sign
