This is the first fake band Cigar Aficionado has seen that was on a Cohiba Siglo VI. It has two obvious font problems. The brand name is of smaller type than the original, and the scripted "Habana, Cuba" is darker than it should be. There's also a slim line of white between the rows of white dots and the brand name, which shouldn't be there. The gold luster of the real band hasn't been replicated properly, either, perhaps proving that the Cuban cigar industry chose well when redesigning the band on perhaps their most famous brand.
