It's a simple enough tobacco tin with an intriguing name - as I try to picture pipe smoking nuns - no disrespect intended.

This is a well known and widely enjoyed pipe tobacco from Great Britain. Originally produced by J & F Bell in Glasgow, Scotland at the end of the 19th century, and subsequently by the firm W.D. & H.O. Wills. These two firms in conjunction with 6 other tobacco firms merged in 1901 to form the Imperial Tobacco conglomerate.

W.D. & H.O. Wills continued to market Three Nuns Tobacco in it's iconic tin up to the late 1980's. I would date this particular tin to the 1970's, possibly a little earlier.

The tin is approximately 3.5 ins in diameter - embossed on the side of the lid are the following: "W.D. & H.O. Wills - 2 oz. net weight when packaged - three nuns - to open insert coin under lid and twist"

The 3-tone colours are still good - there is usage wear and some rust blemishing on the exterior and the typical tarnishing on the interior, sides and bottom of the tin.

This item is being offered in as found condition.
