This appears to be an unopened key wind Hills Bros. Coffee tin but looks can be deceiving. This vintage tin, with the man in yellow trade mark, is actually a dummy tin. Tins of this sort were often used in store and exhibit displays, usually with a large number of the tins stacked in a pyramid. The tin is just like one that might be filled with coffee, including the key on the top, but it was made with a hole in the bottom and never filled which means many could be shipped at less cost. It has a 1932 copyright by Hills Bros. of San Francisco.
It measures about 3 9/16" tall by 5" in diameter and is in very nice condition with good gloss, minimal wear and light scratches.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
