20 herbal cigarettes (generally Honey Rose herbals), inner foil, outer
label, tobacco stamp appropriate for the age of the cigarette, and
cellophane outside wrap with a contrast color opening strip which runs along
a pre-perforation in the cellophane for easy opening.
Cigarettes are available in the 60mm "regular size" size which is common
from the 1880s through the mid-1950s, and the 80mm "king" size which began
being in general use from the late 1940's through today. It is necessary to
cut down the 80mm herbals in order to make them suitable for 60mm packages,
although once you remove the filters, it is necessary to put a 1/4" spacer
in the bottom of the pack as the removal of the filter makes the cigarette
shorter than 60mm. Foreign cigarettes often come in flat packages of 20
rather than the conventional packs we have in the U.S. They are also often
wrapped vertically rather than horizonally as U.S. cigarettes are. Some
foreign cigarettes are also available in the box containers which were popular
beginning in 1953 and continue to today.
