    Extremely Rare 1889 Goodwin & Co. "Dogs Head Cigarettes" (N172/N173 Era) Pack Plus Promo. The years 1888 and 1889 saw an additional offering by Goodwin with there "Dog's Head Cigarettes" brand. Coupons that were to be redeemed for the N173 cabinet cards were inserted in these packs and certainly the source of the very rare N173 cabinet cards that feature the "Dog's Head" advertising on the mount. According to noted experts, the "Old Judge Cigarette boxes are fairly scarce although not impossible to find." "... On the other hand, Dogs Head cigarette boxes are extremely rare and prove difficult to find." Offered is not just any Dogs Head pack, this one still houses ten cigarettes! There is some wear and some soiling but the pack is in very-good-plus condition. The series of 1883 tax stamp has the ever important "Manufr. No. 40 - Third District, N. Y. Dec. 1, 1889 overprint stamp. Also included, is a rare "Pictures In Smoke" Old Judge and Dogs Head Cigarettes 6 x 6" paper promo. The top shows a smoker at his leisure taking a "healthy" sized puff, the under layer shows scenes that a male smokers would dream about - ones that involve playing cards, drinking and women... plus one of "mom" with her judgmental umbrella to keep her son from having too much fun. This is the first of this type of promo we have encountered. Two very rare items for one bid.
