For sale is a wonderfully rustic vintage Burley and Bright Half and Half Tobacco Tin! Check out the wonderfully weathered patina of the tin! Even cooler is that fact that the remnants of the original blue tax label are still attached to the fully functional hinged lid as well as each side of the tin. Would be great for displaying in your home, using as an herb planter, or perhaps even carrying around your freshly rolled cigarettes!

Both large sides of tin read: “Burley and Bright Tobacco. Half and Half. A Cargo of Contentment in the Bowl of any Pipe.”

One small side of tin reads: “Factory No. 1 District of Virginia. Notice: the manufacturer of this tobacco has complied with all requirements of law. Every person is cautioned, under penalties of law, not to use this package for tobacco again.”

The other small side reads: “Half and Half smoking tobacco is unconditionally guaranteed by The American Tobacco Company Incorporated.”

Tax stamp has a great picture of John D. Adams and reads “1 ⅝ Ounces Tobacco Tax Paid.”

Measurements: Approximately 4.5” tall x 2.75” wide x 1” thick

Item Condition: tin is in great shape considering its age. Nicely weathered over the years, the tin contains some rusting, staining and small dents and scratches..all of which add to it’s amazing rustic look. Awesome!!
