Disappointed MCI Cigarettes

Postby JT1991 » Wed Sep 20, 2017 9:19 pm

Hey everyone,

So I just received my first MCI containing cigarettes. I was on edge. Couldn't wait to get them. When I got them and opened the accessory pack, the cigarettes were crushed. Very disappointed. Not what I hoping being my first MCI with cigs. :cry:

Hope everyone else is having a decent day.

Aww, sorry man. Nothing is worse than destroyed expectations. I don't share your love for cigarettes but I know all too well that feeling. Here's to hoping your next pack is crisp, well preserved and aged to perfection.

I know that feeling. I bought a circa 1960s MCI on eBay and paid a large sum for it too. The pics showed the MCI being completely unopened, everything intact and the seller described it as such. When I received it, I opened it up and lo and behold, the accessory packet had been torn open and the cigarette packet was also opened. While I presume it still had the original cigarettes (I had no way of knowing for sure) they were incredibly dry and broke apart as soon as I took them out of the packaging. I was pissed that the seller had rummaged around in it, taken things out of it and for all I know, even replaced some things and tacked on a misleading description.

Oh man. Such a let down when something like that happens. Here's to future purchases with everything intact! Take care and good luck on your next purchase.

Oh no! I got a pack of Salems, not a huge menthol person so I have yet to open it, but I hope they don't look like that when I do.
