Submitted by Dave: Hello-- I came across your site while I was trying to figure out the specifics of a cigar I have in my collection. This was given to me by grandfather by an executive in the Secret Service (from the '50s to the '70s), and my grandmother gave it to me after my grandfather passed in 1990. The Secret Service executive had several pieces of memorabilia in his collection, and he gave this piece to my grandfather (his good friend) several years ago. I also have an unused Eisenhower matchbook as well, but didn't include it in these pictures. From the information I've been able go gather online, this might be a post-embargo "official" JFK cigar (the cellophane means it's not a Cuban). Any insight would be appreciated.
