S106 - Turkish Trophies Cigarettes - "Kink" Series
Issued by the American Tobacco Company in 1910, the Kink series
is one of the most desirable and rarest groups of tobacco silks.
We have had only three examples of this series in the last 5 years.

Tales of the Turkish Trophies. Tale 4 - The Royal Magician.
"What tricks are you going to do for us"? asked
the Kink, when they brought him before the Royal Magician. "A
mighty stunt your majesty," proudly answered the man of tricks.
"I shall grow from a turkey's wishbone a box of Turkish Trophies."
"And a lucky thing for you that you didn't do the trick backwards,"
said the Kink, as he borrowed a light from the Royal Torch Carrier.
This example is Very Fine with some small amounts of fraying
at the top and bottom but clean and bright. (Stock number
Tales of the Turkish Trophies. Tale 14 - The Royal Forecaster.
"Well", said the Kink, as the Royal Forecaster came
before him for sentance, "your weather dope has been wrong
99 times out of 100 for the past 10 years. What excuse have ou
for holding your job?" "Sire," answered the Weather
Man, humbly, "three years ago I put the Turk in Turkish Trophies."
"And for that," said the Kink sadly, "I will let
you try to pick the Ki out of Kibosh when you reach the foot of
the toboggan." Next case!. This example is Very Fine
with some small amounts of fraying at the top and bottom but clean
and bright. (Stock number 003kink14) SOLD
