Aluminium Foil Wrapped
The use of true aluminium foil (for wrapping cigars) started in the 1920s but because of the high cost to hand-wrap the cigars, its general use was replaced with cellophane sleeves (except for premium or special cigars) by the 1940s.
Current aluminium foil is actually a naturally silver coloured aluminium paper foil.
It can be either plain or have an embossed pattern (stars etc.) and can fully or partially wrap the cigar.
