Triple Cap

A Cuban-style of cigar head, also known as a mounted or three-seam cap (see photo). These heads are flat, and have three seams. This method is being found in a variety of other countries now, including the United States, some factories in Nicaragua and Honduras, and in very rare instances the Dominican Republic.

In this photo, one can clearly see the seams created by a mounted head.
