“Yanko Spanko” Vintage Cigar Label from 1898


Info from Heritage Auctions: “Yanko Spanko Cigar Inner Label Proof by F. Heppenheimer’s Sons. What good stuff for the patriotic smoker of 1898!

“Uncle Sam, wearing a sailor’s cap and defiling the Spanish flag, spanks a mutton-chopped embodiment of Iberian imperialism. Simultaneously in the background, the U.S. Navy metes out punishment to the Spanish fleet.”
