This old concave pocket tin was for Fresh Tuxedo Tobacco - Specially Prepared for Pipe or Cigarette from The American Tobacco Company. The front features a dapper gentleman within a gold circle. On the back is a pipe and a statement about the guarantee. Most of the 1910 tax stamp remains on the top of the hinged lid and down the sides. There is also part of an original paper label glued to the back which tells about the delivery system for getting fresh tobacco to the consumer. The label is fun and original but it is glued to the tin and removing it could ruin the finish on the tin. Inside the lid there is also a guarantee by the American Tobacco Co. Unincorporated.
The empty concave tin measures about 4 ¼” by 3” by 15/16” and it is in nice condition with bright color and gloss but there is some light dent wear, minor scratches and some discoloration to the sides.
