Hello Everybody, my name is Moxie and I am brand new to Collectors Weekly. Nice to meet you all.
I found this banner touting Camel's cigarettes folded away at a flea market in Los Angeles. I am a former smoker (I quit 15 years ago-yea me!) but still ponder the smell and taste of my long ago fiery friends.
I think the banner is made of a cotton/ polyester blend. The image is one used in many old school Camel ads, though I am not sure the exact date the banner was made. There are sticks at the top and the bottom, and on the righthand side the initials MW/SS. I have seen similar banners advertising American cigarettes and was told most were manufactured in Japan.
If you know anything about my newest treasure, please give me a holler!
All best. Moxie
