Back in the day, tobacco stocks didn't have the stigma they later earned. The companies were proud of their product and nearly all their stocks and bonds featured tobacco in the field. You might recognize a few of these names.

American Tobacco later became American Brands, as it diversified. The Indian chief depicted was first engraved by American Bank Note and later Security-Columbian Bank Note tried to recreate the portrait. You can decide which did a better job.










Remember L&M cigarettes? Those initials stood for Liggett & Myers.






Lorillard Tobacco produced Kent, Newport, and Maverick cigarettes, among others.






United Cigar Whelan was well know for their cigar shops around the country.

Found a couple more. These are both stocks from the Tobacco Products Corporation. At first glance the vignettes appear the same, but they are different engravings. They depict sharecroppers and the figures are almost faceless. It's a little creepy.

It makes you wonder: what products that are popular today will be reviled in the future?
