Here is a sampling of the "Heer und Flotte" (Army and Navy)
packs of Cigarettes and Cigars which were issued to all German Armed Forces from the 1880's forward, in an effort to standardize
supplies for the ever growing empire the Kaiser was building!
Please note that the Cigars (based on size and manufacturer)
were packaged in boxes containing between 3 and 10, while cigarettes initially came in 20's, but as the war progressed, were
reduced to issue packs of 4, 5 or 10.
