A small tin of 5" in height and 2 1/2" square for LINTON'S DESICCATED COCONUT...Made By LINTION HUBBARD & Co LONDON.The tin appears to have only very minor surface rust spotting but the old paper label shows deterioration as pictured. I would think this tin dates to the late 1800's.To preserve it the label needs pasting down with glue and a cote of lacquer over it for protection. Nice old collectible .
