This is an old, Handsome Dan Mixture, cut tobacco tin which was marketed by the L.L. Stoddard Co. of New Haven Connecticut. It is a dark metallic blue embellished with gold with a bulldog logo shown on the front with the words YALE - MASCOT within a decorative circle.
It measures about 3 7/8" by 2 5/8" by 1 1/4" and is in fairly good condition with minor wear. It has a few small nicks off the paint across HANDSOME and the edges of the hinged lid show wear. There is also wear along the raised front edge of the front panel where it gets opened. Otherwise it is a nice looking tin in fairly good condition.
