It has finish wear and scuffs as you can see; scratching in case, otherwise excellent. Plays well. Wings Cigarettes were introduced in 1929 by Brown & Williamson Tobacco Company of Louisville, KY. With the coming of the Great Depression, Wings were sold for ten cents while most major brands were fifteen and their sales skyrocketed. During WWII, the company also sponsored a radio show called "Wings of Destiny" which was highly popular. Please look at all the pics as they are part of description. 16-1/4"H x 12"W x 8"D.|
