Hello,

Was wondering if anyone had any information on my " Corto Rothschild Cigar " token I pulled from an Adelaide Park land last night? Next to no information on line.

Apparently the name "Rothschild" is used with cigars as a generic term, referring to a particular style/size of cigar, rather than any particular involvement by the famous banking family:

Also, the word corto is Spanish for "short", so Corto Rothschild Cigars is a descriptive name. Presumably it was also a brand, as evidenced by the existence of tokens.

Found this site where someone found what sounds like the same in NSW in 2014.
