Hi guys - I just bought a box of "Cohiba Piramides". Not "Cohiba Piramides Extra", and not "Cohiba Piramides Limited Edition". Just "Cohiba Piramides".

They come in tubes, its a box of 15 tubos. The quality is impressive - the bands are on point and look legit, with holograms and everything. 

I'm only suspicious because of the following:

  • relatively low price
  • the lack of "Cohiba Piramides" online
  • the fact that the head on the band is missing the white line/border around it.
  • The fact that the hologram only says "cohiba" and not "cuba"
  • The fact that the head hologram does not have fine lines in it.

Could this all just be because its a special or old version? A production mistake due to which im getting them cheaper through an insider? wishful thinking?

Thoughts?

Thanks

Nice first post. It is customary to introduce yourself here, before asking the forum for assistance.

Thanks @Fuzz - I've written a short introduction of myself here.

Would really appreciate everybody's help with this though as I have the opportunity to buy another one of these boxes tomorrow at a very, very low price. Don't want to spend any cash on it though if they're fake.

The pic below doesn't give it justice - the "cohiba" hologram at the top and bottom of the band is crisp and clear, no printing issues whatsoever...

Thanks!

Ah. The famous insider - that’s all I needed to hear. They are fake.

FWIW, my cardboard 3-packs say “Piramides Extra”.

Sure fake. And they didn't do their homework. But really a mighty fine wrapper on this piramides.

Would you mind disclosing source and what you paid?

The tip of the neck at the bottom should not be touching that square on the left.  Most of the fakes with decent bands I've seen are that way.  The font on "Habana, Cuba" looks off too. 

Should look like this and also have the thin lines running through the hologram but on through the center/second head.
