5551 Our Militia C. 1900 Wood Cigar Box Militia Parade, Soldiers, Allentown Pa For Sale

5551 Our Militia C. 1900 Wood Cigar Box Militia Parade, Soldiers, Allentown Pa

5551 Our Militia c. 1900 wood cigar box full dress militia parade, Allentown PAVery good condition overall. Main considerations for condition are the inner label and structural integrity of the box. - Inner label: Excellent w/ very light minor water spots lower right corner. A few minor wrinkles, normal for an inner label. - Outer label: Poor condition w/ this label being used as a box seal that had to be broken to open the box, thus tears, chips. - Tax stamp: No stamp - Lid: Tight original attachment to box. - Box: Tight, some normal overall wear & staining.Label printer: F. Heppenheimer’s Sons, NYCigar maker: Allentown, PA Factory #1092 1st Dist. PATax stamp: No stampCigar Type: Perfectos, Sumatra wrapper, long Havana filler, hand made.Label Details: This is Heppenheimer label #2778, marked on the bottom edge of the label.An unusual image with a strange feel about it in that the soldiers are clear in the front row, but the image recedes in such a way that the feeling conveying is one of innumerable soldiers, a limitless number. The net effect is one of being somewhat intimidating in that going up against this group would be pointless for being outnumbered.Comments: Collecting cigar boxes requires more pragmatic thinking than most other collected categories. The reality is that expecting or acquiring only excellent condition boxes of this time period is unrealistic. What the informed collectors realize is that by definition of cigar box use, particularly after-use, the boxes are commonly showing wear. The after-use was often utilitarian with everything from buttons to nails being put in them. The key in evaluating cigar boxes is to consider age / label image / scarcity.Perspective: This box is from a collection started 40 years ago. In this box there is good age, and the label is very scarce. In 40 years of over 1,000 paper & advertising shows behind me, and seeing many collections, this is the only example of this box I have seen.All items original to period - No reproductions sold in my store.For ephemera relating to tobacco, cigar box, military, soldier, horseback rider, product label, or ephemera in general, go to my store: there is a weekly sale.
