A VERY RARE glass/porcelain cigar humidor jar from that Island South of Miami! The elusive Montecristo Millenium Reserve Robusto Jar -- only 6000 ever made!

Montecristo is arguably the world's most famous Cuban cigar brand of all. Montecristo made the porcelain humidor jars as famous as H. Upmann did their clear glass jars. Here is your chance to own one of the rarest jars of all: The Montecristo Millenium Reserve "Habanos 2000" jar -- released in 1999 to celebrate the new millenium. Only 6000 of these jars were ever made. The robusto vitola was another thing that makes this jar so special: The robusto is not a "regular" Montecristo size...so this is a double-special rarity! For 2000 Cohiba made a torpedo (Montecristo shape) and Montecristo made a robusto (Cohiba shape).

The jar is 7.5 inches tall X 5.25 inches wide. The labeling is fired into the glass and in flawless condition. The cedar inserts and cork lid-liner remain intact. A gold-colored "Credo" style humidifier is included.

There is only one flaw in the whole jar: A very tiny chip on the back side right by the lip. This chip is indicated by the red arrow in photos 5 and 6.

After you grab this one there will only be 5999 others available in the world...so why not get a bargain on it? THERE IS NO RESERVE AND THE BIDDING STARTS AT 99 CENTS! Expedited shipping to the lower 48 states ONLY $20 flat rate. Sorry...I no longer ship to Europe, Asia, Africa Canada, Alaska or Hawaii...TOO expensive and too many hassles. PAYMENT VIA PAYPAL IS DUE WITHIN 24 HOURS OF AUCTION END unless we discuss otherwise. Due to vintage nature of this item, sorry...no returns...so PLEASE ask asa many questions as you need to ask.
