I sure as hell didn't invent this concept. Folks have been doing this form of "tramp art" since the turn of this last century. It took about 9-10 hours to complete. The most time consuming part being the cutting up of the labels and the multiple, multiple coats of antiquing glue applied. Thanks to the good folks who sent labels. (you know who you are) After time and expenses these would cost about $250.00 on the open market. No surprise that no one makes them for re sale :lol:

Great job Dock! I made one of these a few years back, very time consuming but I think they look cool when done.

Very nicely done! What is the hammer and sickle band off of? I've never seen one of those before.

Pretty good cigar. I don't know who makes it. The normal is a Connecticut wrapper.

Im not for sure on how hard they are to find now but when they first came out you could find a moscow city and a regular hammer in a nice glass double case. They were actually rather nice boxes. The cigars come in nice "glass" looking cases as well. The Moscows are in a black glass box while the others are in a clear box.
