A REAL pal that's Chesterfield. Look
nt its record. Three million smokers
less than five years on the market! Two
words explain It "They Satisfy."
Our expert buyers In the Orient select for
Chesterfields only the finest grade of the
four choicest varieties of Turkish tobacco.
To these are added tho best of mild but
full-bodied Domestic leaf.
But, In the end, It's the blend that makes
Chesterfields "satisfy. " And the blend our
private formula cannot be copied.
Extra wrapper of moisture-proof
paper seals in tho flavor.
