The following notebooks were stolen from a car in Lithia, Florida. They belonged to a collector/scholar and contained 40 years of research. If you have any information on either the notebooks or the ephemera they contained, please contact Loy Glenn Westfall at 813-990-9847 or

Inside the first  black three-ring notebook  is a one-of-a kind collection of Key West cigar labels. There is a white tagon the binding with "KEY WEST, A-K" on it. Along with the labels are  photographs and documentation on a number of the labels. They were filed alphabetically from a (A) AFRICORA to  "J"  and include rare labels such as CORTEZ, some factory  litho  labels (photo of a lector at a podium from a 1917 TOBACCO LEAF article), as well as  an 1853-1903 green  backdrop EL PRINCIPE DE GALES label. There are also  some GATO labels, including LA VISTA DE GATOVILLE.

The second white three ring notebook has over 50-60 rare Key West duplicate labels. There are a number of SAN CARLOS  labels as well as others with the Key West name on them. All the labels are in plastic sleeves, and a number of them have documentation on a white sheet attached, some with the name Loy Glenn Westfall on the information sheets.
