"Yeah, Tom - I'm familiar with tobacco cards and these definitely are - not those.  I was thinking more of a tissue lining insert in a box of ceegars, but these seem almost too large for that, either.  I think the gov't back then…"

bob clark replied to Bjorn's discussion Can anybody identify what this is? in the group Whadja Find Today
