I have here a Union Leader Tobacco Tin featuring a handle for ease
in picking up and putting down while a convenient clasp on the side
and a hinged lid that opens up. This tin originally contained smoking
and chewing tobacco. An American Bald Eagle is featured three times
on the top, and the two sides. In the past when these were emptied
they became lunch pails for children and adults to use to take their
lunch to work or school. They knew about being green way before it
became popular to do so since it was a necessity back then.
This Union Leader Tin has some outstanding graphics from the 1920's
with the colors still vividly bright but it does have small dents, surface
scratches, chippy paint, rust and worn areas with the inside looking
very well kept. I believe it to be in perfect vintage condition considering
its age and use.
The graphics are repeated on the sides, top and ends as follows:
Union Leader (10)
Smoke and Chew (3)
For Smoking (1)
For Chewing (1)
American Bald Eagle(3)
So you see you get lots of graphics! They sure knew how to get your
bucks worth with their advertising!
Rare and Unique tobacco tin that would be ideal for storing cds,
paperbacks, photos,decks of cards, the remote all the while adding
to your tin collection.
Height with handle: 6.25"
Thanks for looking.
All sales final.
