Fidel Castro's special cigar case that has hidden compartments which helped him organise the Cuban Revolution has emerged for sale for £100,000.<br />
<br />
The Communist revolutionary leader smuggled out secret messages in the 5.5ins by 7.5ins wooden box while in prison from 1953 to 1955.<br />
<br />
It has two secret doors that slide up to put letters in, which enabled him to get notes past the prison guards to his 26th of July Movement comrades.<br />
<br />
He was mobilising his supporters to overthrow US-backed General Batista.
