The Nieuw Amsterdam was built for the Holland-Amerika Line. We believe that this tin relates to the earlier SS. NIEW AMSTERDAM launched in 1906 rather than the second ship launched in 1938. We think that these "First Class Only" tins were presented to First Class passengers as "freebies" The tin is in good order and measures 4 1/8" x 2 6/8"...does have a couple of nicks out of the rim. Possibly a tobacco tin?
