    Beatles Vintage German Cigar Bands (Five Sets of Four) with Original Brochure (Germany, 1960s). From the Carl Rapp & Son Cigar company comes these handsome 2.5" x 1.125" gold embossed bands for Caraso Cigars, each with a color image of a Beatle and fanciful name labels: John is "Apollo", Paul is "Aristoteles", George is "Brutus", and Ringo is "Bacchus" (this naming likely indicates a non-licensed product). Part of a series of 100 different personalities available as described in the included four page 6" x 4" brochure. The Beatles were in good company, with others in the series being notables such as Julius Caesar, Churchill, Kennedy, Einstein, Gandhi, and Martin Luther. All Excellent. From the Uwe Blaschke Beatles Collection.
