Joe Tinker Cigar Box

Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $580.00

This classic wooden cigar box has a gold bordered oval label on the outside top of the lid picturing a portrait image of Tinker surrounded by lettering which reads "Joe Tinker - Mild Havana." The box opens to reveal a full-color label picturing Tinker in a coat and tie. Also included is a store display glass slide with metal rim reading "Joe Tinker 5 cents" in red, which is specially designed to keep the interior lid properly displayed when on the cigar store counter, and the cigars fresh while on display in the store. The labels on the lid (interior and exterior) have some toning and light staining, but are still impressive for display. There are two varieties of Joe Tinker cigar boxes. They are slightly different in size and the interior labels are identical; however, the exterior oval portrait label can only be found on this slightly smaller style. This is by far the rarer style. In fact, this is the only example we have ever seen featuring the oval label. Both the box and glass slide are in Very Good condition. An original cigar with a "Joe Tinker Cigar" band (Nr/Mt-Mt) accompanies the box. Dimensions: 9.5 x 5.25 x 1.5 inches. Total 3 items. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $580.00
