This old vertical pocket tin was for Half and Half tobacco tin. The tobacco was a combination of Burley & Bright tobacco and Contentment tobacco which used the slogan; A Cargo of “Contentment” in the Bowl of Any Pipe. Half and Half smoking tobacco was a product of The American Tobacco Company. On one side panel it reads; Factory No. 1 Virginia. Across the top of the hinged lid and down the sides are remnants of the original 1 3/4 Ounce tax stamp. The patent under the hinge dates this to 1950.
The empty tin measures about 4 ¼” high by 3” wide by 7/8” deep and is in very nice condition with good gloss and minimal dent and scratch wear. The tax remaining tax label is discolored and worn, barely legible.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
