IMPORTANT TO NOTE: any "dark" areas in the images are merely reflections. The case has an extremely reflective surface making it difficult to photograph. TRULY more spectacular in person and "in hand". The case will hold shorts, hand rolled cheroots, marijuana joints, filter-less cigarettes. Also good to hold rolling papers. The perfect anniversary gift or wedding gifts for the groom and groomsmen. They also make fine birthday and graduation gifts. Great piece of collectible tobacciana!
70mm cigarettes were the original cigarette size and are typically 2 3/4 inches long. These were traditionally filter-less cigarettes and were the dominant size before the popular filtered cigarette started to dominate the market. This size is still very popular with the roll-your-own community, but are less popular from a commercial standpoint. Once the filter tipped cigarette came out in the late 1950's, these started to decline in popularity. By the mid to late 1960's the filter tip cigarette had started to dominate the market, but these were still very popular due to the large amount of people who were used to smoking this size cigarette. These are still widely available, but not very popular in the modern day.
