    Moldy(?) von Eicken‘s



    Interestingly the tobacco is from Hamburg, Germany but the text is in English and it was sold in France

    All looks very good to me mark, jolly smoggo!
    Although it's hard to tell from your photo of the von eickens, I'd be very surprised if that's mould.

    Hello,

    I hope they turn out well for you. I will try to find out more about von Eicken, so far I know that the name is on at least one tobacco still sold today, will have to look that one up again as well, though.

    Interesting spelling in the Mullingar's description, third line from the bottom: "from two naturel aromatic tobaccos".

    Or maybe it's a proper word in its own right that I'm not aware of in English, or it is borrowed from French.

    Best wishes
    Markus

    That is interesting because it is definitely a spelling mistake, or comes from French.

    Either Jimbo or SimonG knows von Eicken from the past. It looks like a serious tobacco but we’ll have to see whether it is mouldy or not.

    Here's what's left of my von eickens stash mark. I've gone through quite a few of the dark flake tins. Still haven't tried the gold flake or the three stars yet. Looking at the artwork on your tin I'd say it's even older than mine. Markus, it would be great if you could find out more about this brand. I for one, would be very interested. Cheers! Simon.
