Here is a old Union Leader Tobacco Tin I picked up at a garage sale over the weekend. The lithograph is in great condition he reminds me of Uncle Sam. Great piece of Americana.

    The earlier “Union Leader” have “Uncle Sam” before the “Eagle” type. The Uncle Sam variation should not to be confused with the actual “Uncle Sam Brand” see link: http://www.mygerardinc.com/images/vtins/stu/u/unclesam.jpg
    Some of the Uncle Sam’s were wider than the normal pocket size like this one..

    There are “Free Sample” and “Complementary” version of the Eagle type, which are uncommon. There is a rare Eagle version with a hand holding a pipe on the backside.
    This rare one is very elusive since the front of it looks just like all the rest of the Eagle type. One of these days I will have the Union Leader page set up on my website at:
