    C. 1910's Large "Drum Granulated Smoking Tobacco" Counter Display Carton. Offered is an empty, circa 1910 "Drum Granulated Smoking Tobacco" Counter Display Carton. Cards with the "Drum Cigarettes" advertising are about as coveted as a card can be. The name is the ultimate attention grabber for T205 and T206 collectors alike. As is common with all rare cards brands, packs, boxes or associated pieces are even more difficult to acquire. Even the deepest budget does nothing to bring related products to auction as they just don't exist in any noticeable quantity. The offered carton measures 9.5 x 11.5 x 5.5" with one color repeated "Drum Granulated Smoking Tobacco" and snare drum and sticks graphic, the side panels encourage consumers to "Smoke Drum" for the advertised price of 5-Cents. There is some staining. The corners have wear and there are areas of corner splitting. The inner top panel is separated and partially missing on one side but attached by the tab of the outer top panel as designed. The top inner tabs have three pieces of tape which seems to have no purpose. We did not want to disturb the delicate tabs but all three layers of the bottom are intact. A great display piece.
