great type find

My father-in-law is always finding cool new things. When he is not finding new things, he's digging out treasures from his past and showing me. He has kept some interesting items from his youth that I would proudly display in my home if he would just cough them up. This old cigar box is one of those items. It is an interesting script font with a hand-drawn feel. I may make a rubbing of it and print out a version so we have it to look at here. There are many hidden gems lurking in all the falling down barns and rotting vehicles of northern PA. My hope is that my father-in-law tracks 'em down before Mother Nature recycles them back to the soil.
