I used to smoke those when I was a youth along with Balkan Sobranie and De Rezke brands.

They could be purchased in downtown Boston at Ehrlich tobacconists.

Where the first pic showed Austrian WWI soldiers with a crate of ciggies, some additional info.
Since the Austrian / Habsburgian Empire took over Bosnia & Hercegowina in 1878, they incorporated the Ottoman sword into the offical Coat of Arms of Bosnia & Hercegovina.

As the tobaaco of the Hercegovina ( Herzegovina Flor) was one of the best, the exploitation went without saying very well...

Hereby some brands with some fancy "Orientalism" display or lay out (obviously for commercial reasons...)
