This small round tin once held Colgan’s Mint Chips and it carries the slogan; The Gum That’s Round. The gum was advertised as being a Delicious Digestive and was guaranteed by the company under the 1906 Food & Drug Act. The slip on lid has a copyright date of 1910. The gum was manufactured by the Colgan Gum Co. of Louisville Kentucky.
The tin measures about 1 7/16” in diameter by ¾” high and is in very nice condition with good gloss and minimal wear and paint loss mostly along the top edge. There is some discoloration on the inside.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
