I spoke to a few people about this and they all suggested I post the brief story and images here.
Last September I bought a few boxes from a "cracking" offer on here. One of the boxes was a Bolivar Belicos Fino ... my personal favorite habano. I let them rest and started to break into them over the past month (Side note - I believe the box had a 2017 year marking)
The sticks have been great with that signature Bolivar flavor so many enjoy...speaking of signature, I removed the band as it was becoming loose and found a secret message 😉
I was smoking with a buddy and we both thought it looked like someone's signature "A... G... II"
Of course there's no way to be sure what it really says but I will say in all my years of smoking, I've never seen a signed band/note on a cigar and thought it was pretty neat.
Anyone else seen this before on one of your cigars??
