||From Germany - 2 new Peter Stuyvesant variations
West Germany is a market where the Peter Stuyvesant name belongs to a non-Rothmans company (although Rothmans are very active in Germany). The Reemtsma Company which owns the name there has recently introduced two brand variations - Peter Stuyvesant "Extra Leicht", a low-nicotine brand, and Peter Stuyvesant "Aromatisch". Both are king size, and the packs in both cases bear strong family likenesses to the standard design.
The Peter Stuyvesant 25's Hinge-Lid Pack
During 1975 Rothmans introduced on the Canadian market a 25s hinge-lid box for Peter Stuyvesant 100s. An unusual feature of this packing was the division of the cigarettes into two unequal foil bundles, one of 14 cigarettes, and the other of 11. The pack is the same thickness as a conventional 20's h/1 box, but substantially wider (74mm approximately). We now have a specimen of the pack which is illustrated here.
