Collectibles ... they're everywhere. You can collect tractors, cars, buses, fire engines, old trucks, horse drawn vehicles, kiddy cars, trains and a whole lot more. And if you don't have room for the real things you can collect models of them or you can collect things like football cards, Pez dispensers, memorabilia ... heck I even know a person who collects clothes pegs ... and lots of other small things.


There's a huge market in collectibles no matter what shape or size they might come in and of course people all over the world are interested in collecting things. Even amongst cigar smokers there's an interest in cigar collectibles and that interest may be a whole lot bigger than you think.

Antique cigar boxes are an obvious collectible and so are old humidors. They may not be able to keep your cigars fresh anymore but that doesn't mean a thing to the people who collect them. It's the craftsmanship that goes into them and their rarity that makes them so collectible and their age can also add to their value. 

But it's not just old humidors and cigar boxes that are collectible. Cigar bands are also collectible items as are old cigar cutters, antique lighters, cigar holders and of course the cigar store Indian. That well-known adornment was a very collectible item way before any of the other cigar-smoking paraphernalia became popular.

I have an El Producto Coronas Cigar card board box and the best thing about this box it still has all but about 4 cigars out of fifty in it .

I found this paper fan at a yard sale. It has the name Great Hill Cigars on it. Under the name there are some symbols or words in what looks like Chinese or Japanese language. Do you think this is of any value? I have looked for memorabilia for cigars that are fans but have not found anything. Can you help me out? . Thanks.
