We'd like to extend our gratitude to all the fine collectors on --we are honored to provide you all with 5-star service and look forward to continuing to offer an always eclectic and sometimes plain weird assortment of art deco ephemera, paper, and memorabilia in the coming year.

ITEM: You are offerding on an old original antique 5 Cent cigarette gaming punch board. Titled,'Fancy Fives' with a garter showing pin-up girl on a swing by Gil Elvgren (we believe), though it might be Art Frahm or Vaughan Bass. This is a classic cheesecake pin-up image from around 1940. These game of chance punchboards were placed in Taverns and patrons would stay and drink longer for the chance to complete a section in the punch-board and receive another coffin dagger in an era filled with daggers... a complimentary pack of cigarettes typically or in this case a five spot.... These gaming boards were wildly popular during the long years of the Great Depression. This one has great checkerboard graphics and is unused and original to the 1940's and likely manufactured by The Louis F. Dow Calendar Company where Gil Elvgren was employed during the early 1940's when this board was manufactured.

Measures 9 1/2" across by 12"
100% guaranteed an original and dazzling old example of an advertising 5 cent punch-board pin-up display sign



CONDITION: In fine ++ condition with some light edge wear as seen in the corners.Exhibits great graphics and is a fantastic, rare old Tobacciana / pin-up advertising display sign.
