This tin is in very good condition. Most of the paint is intact with good gloss; just some small scratches and flakes (almost all of the paint damage is visible in the photos). There are a couple of light dents and some light surface rust at the lower edge and on the underside. The tin had contained one pound of Light Sweet Cuba Fine Cut Tobacco made by the Continental Tobacco Co., Successor to Daniel Scotten & Co. in Detroit. The tin was made by The Hasker & Marcuse Mfg. Co. in Richmond, VA. Hasker and Marcuse was in business from 1891 until 1901 which places the tin in that time frame. It is 8 1/4" in diameter and 2" deep.
