This vintage Buckingham Half & Half Tobacco Tin, 2 oz. size, is Circa 1930's. This was sold as a sample tin and manufactured by The American Tobacco Company Inc. The tin was designed to prevent the tobacco user from cutting their fingers when filling a pipe or rolling a cigarette. Rather ingenious design for that time period. Guaranteed, "NO MORE GASHED FINGERS".
Overall great solid condition with just some aged patina and scratches to the paint. No dents and hinged top still closes tightly. Still very bright with crisp colors.
A nice tin to add to an antique/vintage advertising tobacco tin collection. Also, great prop for smoke shop. Added display piece for country/farmhouse style decor. Great collectible piece!
