One of the unique cigar items we offer is the “Original” Cohiba Cigar Band Sign.  A solid wood sign depicting the one of, if not the first official incarnation of the Cohiba cigar band dating back to the late 1960s.  The design took multiple attempts and test prototypes to refine and this is one of those prototypes.  Very close to the final version, which is available and sold for $199.00.

We made multiple prototypes and those test signs are all super-nice and sought after items in their own right.  All are for sale and this one measures X x X xX, made of solid wood sign, and is the latest version we’ve posting here for any Cohiba collectors out there.

The Cohiba cigar band graphic is printed on solid wood, then gently distressed and faded to give it an aged look, finished with a protective polyurethane finish.  The back has simple metal hanging hardware.  Each is totally unique in terms of the distressing, fading and the patina of the wood which is visible through the graphic.

Made of reclaimed wood!  All our signs are made of saved solid wood, reclaimed from demolitions or scrap wood from local woodshops, construction projects, etc.

This is a representation of the “original” Cohiba cigar band, circa 1966.   Very little is known about this rare 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 memorabilia.

Another totally unique solid wood sign, our distressed Cohiba Cigar Band Sign is must have for any Cuban cigar fan. This is a 100% wood sign and makes a colorful accent to any room, office, den, poolroom, even kitchen or bedroom. All our classic signs are custom made exclusively for us by skilled local wood workers, working by hand. This is a new sign but is distressed and aged to appear as if it were just taken off outside of a Cuban shop on the streets of Havana.
