Colorful attractive Sweet Caporal cigarettes advertising display which was meant to be displayed in the door window of a store. Featuring an image of a woman holding a package of Mild & Extra Fine Sweet Caporal cigarettes this 5 1/4" x 14" display is printed on thick cardboard with a graphic on the reverse asking patrons to "Please Shut the Door." While display materials associated with the T206 issue remain plentiful this particular piece is relatively scarce and difficult to find. In apparent EX condition on the front the piece does retain some mild toning on the reverse as well as what appears to be glue residue perhaps from mounting.A scarce tobacco-related collectible an excellent companion piece for a T206 collector.
