I recently obtained from a family member a small collection of various cigars,
while I have lost some of the loose ones to a series of small fires, particularly those which were apparent to me to have not much collectable value, or were obviously stale / broken,
I still have a significant quantity of other cigars and boxes, and I wondered if anyone out there on the internet can help me identify, and work out the value of them, - as I'd hate to smoke them only to discover that they were the cigar equivalent of a bottle of 1951 penfolds grange!!
while thats unlikely, I'm still keen if anyone can give me any information!
onto the Significant Cigars:
Box 1: Schimmelpenninck Marca Selecta
- 25 Half Corona
plastic wrap slighly opened but otherwise completed sealed,
Box 2: Romeo y Julieta
25 panatellas, box opened, 9 cigars left
Box 3: Henri Wintermans; Half Corona; made in holland, 25 in the box, still in full plastic wrap
Box 4: "TABACALERA, "THE FINEST CIGARS SINCE 1881", hand made, 100% tobacco, manilla, phillipines"
Fully sealed in plastic wrap, the box stickers under the plastic wrap are still intact also.
Those are the cigars in the collection that I think might be the most significant, I've got double the amount of empty cigar boxes and some porcelain cigar branded containers along with 10 boxes of Rothmans Royales - still in the display box, each packet still fully plastic wrapped as well, but I don't know if those are worth anything!!
So thats my little bit of a sidetrack from the usual topics I discuss, and as mentioned, I'd love some assistance with getting an idea of the value of the posted cigars / boxes if anyone knows anything!!

I doubt the Dutch or Philipine cigars will be worth much, but I'll forward this blog link to a mate of mine who's a bit of a cigar officiando. Hopefully he can help you out...

The DUtch cigars are a good smoke (Holland very underrated in this part of the world as a producer of Cigars, but they have been building smokes for yonks).
The Romeo and Juliet are one of the premier Cuban brands. Their Churchills and Number 1's take a bit of getting through. A very strong smoke.
Schimmels and Winterman are fairly mainstream now. I don't know about older stock.
