Sorry for resurrecting an old topic, but I figured better late than never...

IMDB and TV Acres say that having Al smoke cigars was Dean Stockwell's idea, as a sneaky way to get free cigars for as long as the show lasted. His preferred brand was Zino, but checking Google Image Search, I found no similar-looking Zino cigar bands. So, I guess that they were "prop-ified" for the show by replacing the Zino bands with ones of their own design. I wouldn't be surprised if there is some kind of inside joke on them, since they would never be readable on screen. Maybe Project Starbright brand? That could be a pink star in a purple circle in the center.
