I read a post the other day whereby a member was asking about genuine Cohibas and how to tell the difference.

Have a look @ the pics below and you will see the difference...

The first pic shows the fakes and the 2nd pic is the Genuine thing!!

A few notes...

1. Cohiba NEVER released a clear top box!!

2. Check the Bands...notice the quality difference between the two.

3. Canada is notorious for Fakes!!

Here is a link so you can browse some more large, high resolution pics...

www.cigarafficionado.com has an excellent gallery of fakes and how to spot them.

I was just going to make the exact same statement but Dane beat me to the punch.

Just a note, there isn't a brand of cigars released by Habanos S.A. that comes in a clear topped box. Any time you see that, they're most definitely fake.

I know it would be counter productive - but it'd be a real gas if HSA actually made a limited edition glass top.

Once you see an authentic next to a fake, you will not even need to light it up to tell the difference. I had such a chance last Sunday night. I don't think I will be fooled again.

Marc,

There are some very good fakes out there. It is more important now than ever to find great sources to make absolute sure you are getting the real deal.

US Customs is my source on this one, and beleive me that is all you want to know.
