Musical Cigarette

An original "musical cigarette," dating from before 1952. Packet approx. 4.5 x 2.5 inches, cigarette imprinted “Made in Occupied Japan,” printed card stock tube approx. 2.75 inches (a trifle flattened). Cigarette has not been tested for musicality — there appears to be a cardboard reed that likely made a kazoo-like noise as the prankster blew through the tube to put out the match. (15753)
