    Nathan Hale Cigar Label. A lithographed and embossed 10" x 6" inner label picturing an outdoor statue of the great American hero surrounded by eagles mounted on swords and olive branches. Every school child knows the famous speech he gave before he was hanged during the Revolutionary War which included the immortal line: "I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country," but many may not know that he is considered to be America's first spy. There is actually a statue of Hale outside the headquarters of the C.I.A. A great label for the history buff, especially those interested in Connecticut; Hale was officially designated the State Hero of Connecticut in 1985. Excellent condition.

    You reach a customer base that is in many ways completely unknown to the major auction houses, and your marketing to this base is as professional as one could hope for. As I continue to wind down my holdings.
