    Description

    Beatles - A Collection of Twenty-Eight Cigar Bands and An Oversized Cigar (Germany, 1960s). This collection of cigar bands is comprised of seven full sets of four bands per set, each of which feature portraits of all four members of the group. Individual labels range in size from 2" x .75" to 5" x 3" and each set is affixed to its own blue backing board. Likely to avoid licensing issues, some of the labels contain false names for each Beatle, such as Harie, Benny, Marc, and Patrick - the effect is quite humorous! The collection of labels is in Very Good condition.

    Accompanying the labels is a 9" x 70 (approximate ring gauge) German souvenir Revue cigar featuring a label with Paul's image, though his name has been changed to "Aristoteles." The cigar is housed in a 10.25" x 1.5" x 1.75" cedar gift box with a clear top. With a promotional booklet for Revue cigars, 12" x 4" (opened) written entirely in German, listing each cigar series featuring historical figures on the labels (The Beatles are from Series V, number 86 through 89). From the Uwe Blaschke Beatles Collection.
