    Abraham Lincoln: Unique 1860-Dated Wooden Cigar Box. 5" x 7.5" x 4" wooden box with blue paper trim. The lid is stamped "Lincoln P.T.L." above an eagle and wreath. There is a paper end label which features a beardless portrait of Lincoln, titled "A. Lincoln, Fabrica De Tabacos" with the address of a Havana producer. Opposite end stenciled "Colorado 100". Lid still attached, secured on the opposite side with a cord. The tall shape is typical of early cigar boxes. Somewhat delicate, as to be expected. The copyright date of 1860 points to use in the presidential election. We are reliably informed the maker was Bancés y Suaréz of Havana. Cigars named after famous American statesmen were routinely exported to the U.S. during this period. From the Collection of David and Janice Frent.
