This is a very early tobacco tin with a paper label and hinged lift top lid. The tobacco in this can came from Factory No. 10, 5th Dist., N.J. The can is stamped on the bottom showing it was manufactured by the Ginna Tin Can Co. New York. The paper on this can is brittle from aging and there is chipping and areas of label loss and also staining and age darkening. The back of the tin although still rough is the better of the two sides and displays very well. Both ends sides have darkening and staining. The lid of the tin has shallow denting and a small splitting of the tin at one corner but the lid still works fine and closes well. Even with all its wear and aging issues this old tin with its wonderful bulldog graphics looks great. This tin is extremely rare and dates back to the late 1800's. Its dimensions are 6" tall x 6" wide x 3 3/4" deep.
