Old Parodi Cigar Box...with old cigars in it

First post here, and wanted to get a little help on an old box of cigars that I found in a box of miscellaneous items I found in a closet today.

Obviously these are no longer any good, so what I'll probably end up doing is put them on the mantle or a bookshelf as a conversation piece.  They still have a nice smell though.  I have no idea how I got these or where they came from.  I did a little online research on the company, so I'm familiar with the history.

I guess what I'd like to know is...is it worth anything?

    There may be someone whom collects that brand that may see value in it. Out side of this, since they are not in smoking condition I would say not worth much.

    The factory was in my hometown(Scranton PA). Factory is gone, but they still make them somewhere. Box still looks the same. Not a collector, but can't imagine it is worth much.
  • Just down the street from Dunder-Mifflin?  LOL. 

    Didn't think they'd be worth much, if anything.  They'd probably blow up in three seconds if I tried to light one, LOL.  I'll probably just keep it on a shelf because it looks antique-ish and pretty cool.

    Yes. Two good things that came out of Scranton. Reportedly Clint Eastwood is a big fan of these cigars.

    my dad still smokes the modern version of these as a "yard-gar"
    they are dry cured and for some reason always look a little crooked in the mouth. ... so much so that my dad calls them "crooked little Clint Eastwood cigars"

    personally i am not a fan of them but they do have their place in the world.

    as far as value goes... probably not much beyond what you have already stated... a conversation piece.

    If its not worth any money... It sure is super cool! Nice find! im kinda jealous! :) find a nice little stand for them and have them on a shelf on display. :) The color and condition of that box is well worth hanging on to them! :)
