Advertising Three Ring Puzzle trade card for Tom Keene 5c Cigars. This little bit of paper has been in the "museum" of my husbands family for over 100 years. I found it while moving a big stack of old books in my husbands "man cave". It fluttered out onto the floor, a little curiosity from the past!
It dates from the early 1880s to about the 1910's and measures 4 3/4" long and 2" wide at the blue ring. I think the object of the puzzle is to get the main part of the advertising through the two red and one blue rings without bending it. Somebody bent it slightly! The small crease shows in my pictures but the overall condition is good for the age of the item.
