This old tin of Instant Postum was a 7 Cup Sample enticing you to buy Large Tins at Grocers. The front of the tin has a detailed image of a fancily set table and in red circles it reads; Health First. The Vacuum Cereal Beverage was patented in 1912 and was made of different parts of wheat. The back of the tin has a warning of Postum’s concentration and directions for using. It was manufactured by the Postum Cereal Company of Battle Creek, Michigan. The top has an oval pry out lid.
The empty tin measures about 2 3/16” high by 1 7/8” wide and 7/8” thick. It is in fairly nice condition with good gloss but there is some scratch wear. The back has the paper remnants of an old label or price tag. I have not tried to remove it for fear that it will remove the paint.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
