This Union Leader tobacco tin is from sometime in the first 3 decades of the 20th century. It has some fading of the red color in the red and gold graphics. There is also spots of wear/oxidation on this tin. Looking closely at the top of the tin in picture 9 there are some faint dark areas. These do show up a bit more in person. Overall this tobacco advertising tin is in ok shape and still displays nicely. This little tin makes an attractive place to hide something you want out of view.
