Hat tip to michaeldoty who mentioned this mark that has been in use longer than anything. It turns out the devil has been around in varying forms of the Underwood Company since its registration in 1870. It's been in use longer than any mark of any other US food company.

The brazilian cigarette brands I chose were:  Hollywood, Castelloes, Columbia, Sudaneza, Yolanda, Continental, Elmo, Astoria, Belmont.

They were made at the Souza Cruz Company, that's why you'll see the name in some of the ads.




I just LOVE this ad, so I put it as the cover =)
