The United States Government requested all tobacco companies discontinue making metal tins to hold their tobacco products during WWII. Also inside the container is still several ounces of tobacco inside a very light weight off white material and then in a plastic bag. I weighed the container with the tobacco in it and it weighed 7 oz. The container was made by the Seal Right Company of Fulton, New York. The container is made from stiff cardboard like what ice cream came in many years ago. The tax stamp is still attached and the graphics are still sharp. The container measures 4 3/8” in diameter and 4 5/8” tall.
**Condition: The inside and outside of the container are in good- condition. There is a ¾” x ¾” piece missing from the top edge of the container. There is some wear along the bottom edge of the container. The paper lid is in good- condition. It has some stains and the edge is worn. Overall the paper container is in very good condition for being over 70 years old.
