    From ccom for newbies like Peter and John:

    Corona: The Corona size is one that all other cigar sizes are measured against. Dimensions are 5 ½ to 6 inches with a 42 or 44 ring gauge.

    Petit Corona: This mini corona measures at 4 ½ inches with a 40 to 42 ring gauge.

    Corona Gorda: Also known as a Toro, Corona Gorda is growing in popularity, and measures 5 5/8 inches by a 46 ring gauge.

    Double Corona: Standard dimensions are 7 ½ to 8 ½ inches by a 49 to 52 ring gauge.

    They also call a Churchill a big Corona

    That looks like some nonsense from Cigar Aficianado. They get Toro and Corona Gorda confused too.

    Just because they're wrong doesn't mean you have to agree with them.

    According to that, there's no place to put the 6x50 that most would classify as a Toro.

    I don’t think there will be any refused entrants ... if you send a 9x50 ... I will send it out ( unbanded) .. but you guys will probably judge it accordingly

    Would every cigar in this "contest" be similar? Is everyone sending maduros or cameroons or connecticuts? Or would it be left up to me what I want to send and the only requirement is the size?

    This contest, any wrapper is okay, we are trying to stick with the size

    You can send those La Grand Classe cigars. :-)

    That would be cheating. Everyone loves those.

    At least I included a few stragglers to make up for the $8.

    Is there a special return label function on the USPS.com website? I'm pretty stupid...
