This vintage group of 3 cigarette tins, Phillip Morris, Lucky Strike, and Chesterfield will look great in a retro bar or man cave. The Phillip Morris & Co. Special Blend tin is in near mint vintage condition. I have seen it attributed to the 1940's or 1950's. I truly do not know which decade it belongs in. It measures 3 1/8 inches by 2 1/4."
This flat 50''s tin is green with a red circle in the center that says "Lucky Strike "It's toasted" Cigarettes". These were flat tins with one layer of two rows of cigarettes for a total of 50, hence the nickname, Flat Fifties." There is the usual wear which is common to tins from the 1930's. It measures 5 1/2 inches by 4 1/2 inches. On the inside lid of the tin is a picture of an Indian head. The bottom says American Tobacco Company. Factory number 30 District of N.C. and has a 50 in the middle. The top has a spot of rust. Inside the tin there is a bit of rusting and there are some dented spots on the bottom of the tin with a few spots of rust. The color is still good and the tin still does display very well.
The Chesterfield tin is also from the 1930's, it was a flat fifties tin and held 50 cigarettes. It is the most worn of the three tins with many scratches on the top lid. The inside looks much better but has a little rust. The back is worn with scratches also and has a dent. It measures 5 1/2" by 4 1/2."
