Advertising Pocket Cigar Box for the Illinois Automobile Club, Please read the full description, box is 5” by 3 1/2” by 3/4” in MINT condition. Apparently a promotional item. Originally held 5 cigars, made at factory No. 505 District of Wisconsin. The Red Triangle with “Hole in the Head” inscribed within is possibly the distributor. No evidence of ever having a tax stamp. Circa 1930. See photos
Box will be shrink wrapped for protection. This is part of a large cigar advertising collection of tins and boxes. See last photo showing some but not all.
These small pocket size advertising cigar boxes did not have a strong survival rate and were considered disposable. Unlike the tin pockets one which had a secondary use for storing household and garage items. It is rare to find any of the cardboard pocket cigar boxes in this good condition.
