    Condor 'Navy Cut'

    Whilst having a look at old tins on eBay, came across this one. Never seen or heard of this before, dark brown circular navy cut! Wonder what is was like, anyone had the pleasure?

    Not seen that before!

    I note that it's advertised as "Player's" but the label has worn away - spacing however doesn't look like "Gallahers" would fit.

    Wonder if it was not Gallahers Condor?


    PS: fiddling about with the image makes me think now that they've got it wrong and the missing word was Gallahers.

    Still never heard of it!

    The other photos on the listing had it as Gallahers Belfast & London, I think. Maybe went out of production before the war? Calling MLC

    How much are you willing to pay Simon? I wouldn't pay more than a tenner if I planned on smoking it.
