The only reason I bought this was because it said GUNPOWDER!!!! BOOOOOOOM! :D

DISCLAIMER- this product is NOT explosive!

Ok. Back to the description. This is an ALMOST completely square container that at some time or another housed tea. It doesn't say tea bags. So I tend to think this is PRIOR to tea bags. The color is sort of like an olive drab (think military green). With a blue and silver seal on the top that says "Mayfair Tea" Then in cursive it reads "Gunpowder"

The seal is in decent condition. It IS fully legible! There seems to be some caulk (at least I think that's what it is?) on the tin towards to bottom. I don't think this is for any reason other than mistake. There are some paint drips on the lid and some nics in the lid as well. VERY minimal rust. Only rust I can see a lot of is on the bottom rolled lip, and the bottom of the tin. The bottom of the tin has some discoloring to it. The parts of this tin that are visible are great looking! An all around cool looking tin!

Approx measures- 3" TALL. 2 5/8 WIDE.
