Cohiba Vintage Cigar Band, Wooden Sign
This is a large solid wood cigar band sign, measuring a large 35 inches wide, and 11 inches tall made of 1 inch thick solid wood. One of the most unique cigar items we’ve ever found is this sign depicting the “Original” Cuban Cohiba Cigar Band wooden Sign. Made of solid wood, this sign depicts one of the earliest designs of the Cohiba cigar band, dating back to the late 1960s, when it was initially a private roll for Castro himself, and shortly thereafter used as diplomatic gifts from Castro to world leaders and VIPS.
The 1960s Cohiba cigar band is printed on solid wood, then gently distressed and faded to give it an aged look, finished with a clear matte protective polyurethane finish. The back is stained in a dark oak and includes hanging hardware, allowing you to hang it fast and easily, with a single nail or hook. Each sign is totally unique in terms of the distressing, fading and the patina of the wood.
This is a rare representation of the “original” Cohiba cigar band, circa 1966. Very little is known about this vintage Cohiba cigar band. It was used briefly in the late 1960s or early 70s. At the time, many of the top Cuban brands would routinely produce unique cigar bands for VIPs and businesses, incorporating their name into the band. It’s believed this design was one of those customs bands put on early Cohibas as a one-off, long before the use of the modern Cohiba band we all know. From our research into this band we have seen only one reference to it in authoritative Cuban cigar history resources, with very little background given other than that it was an official release by the Cuban cigar authority at the time, before the brand was made available to the public market. It is well known that Cohiba was initially a special cigar made as special gifts for VIPs and dignitaries, and we suspect this rare Cohiba band was one of these. For the cigar history experts out there, feel free to let us know what more you know about this piece of cigar history.
