A mini work of art--my personal favorite (next to the soldbuchs). German/African cigarettes. You'll strain your eyes admiring the graphics on these packs!
The cigarette packs do not open, but they are not simply folded paper boxes--they've been affixed to small pieces of wood to give them volume and durability. They’re not easily crushed! And have I mentioned how great the Karavans look?

|Shipping and handling included!
Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.
The Soldbuch opens up, but the other booklets and magazine pages are glued together.
Owners are encouraged to dog-ear the corners a little, even bend them a bit, for that used look.
The cost of these sets are the result of them being produced by hand, after extensive research, and I hope any hard-core WWII buff would agree that it’s worth it. The accuracy and detail found in this assortment simply cannot be emphasized enough!
