Ring Sizes help

I am a newbie and have just got my 150 count humidor and am already looking for a 500 count lol. Here is my question. I ordered serveral sampler deals from several places. I am still trying to find the best places to buy from anyway I have some cigars in these samplers that I like but I dont know what there ring size is. The invoices just say something maduro sampler and not the length and ring size. I know this question will make you old timers laugh but do they make something that tell me what the ring size is? I am thinking about the plastic guide we have at work we use when we are trying to figure out a bolt or screw size. Or do I need to get a micrometer to measure the diameter. Thanks. Charles

    Cigar ring gauge is measured in 1/64th of an inch. So a 64 ring is 1 inch. 32 ring is 1/2 inch.
  • Thanks Capt so a cigar thats 7 x 50 is 7 inches long and 50 64th's of an inch in diameter?

    And almost certainly a churchill. (Unless it's a figurado.)
