At times, I collected tins.

Mother does too, but she bakes and
places either he cookies, etc., in them!

Some I added stamps.

But this one is Canadian.

How old?

    I found about a dozen of these listed on the Internet. All listed that they were 7.25" on each side and 3.5" deep. There was a wide range of dates from 1920's to 1940's. The most confident sounding post dated it 1932. No values available but all postings were in agreement that it was a rare tin. It is also interesting that almost every one of them was marked SOLD. That kind of indicates something.

    Thanks FH!

    That is good news!

    Wonder how much is the value?

    None said how old?

    I am still looking. One site in Canada says the company went out of business in 1949 yet another site lists the same name business but at a different location.

    Thanks! I appreciate very much your help FH!

    So that co stopped producing in 1949?
