    La Sciencia Cigar Label by the Calvert Lith. Co. of Detroit and New York. An interesting lithographed 10" x 6" inner label from the Minnesota Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Co. stating "We Back this Cigar with our Reputation." A serious looking scientist with his mortar & pestle, burner, and test tubes is hard at work formulating the perfect cigar. The seal of the state of Minnesota and the seal of the Minnesota Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Company of St. Paul (Incorporated December 2, 1895) are on either side with embossed gold decorative trim. There are certainly many aficionados that will vouch for the pharmaceutical qualities of a fine cigar but it seems a stretch for a pharmaceutical company to stand behind a cigar brand. A popular label in near mint condition. This label is listed as one of the "InStone 100" blue chip cigar labels. From the Richard Revolinski Collection.
