These are my old tins. I probably love the hershey's cocoa tin, becasue it's pre 1900, and still has (whats left) the original label! I have two tobbaco tins, His Majesty's cigarette and Sweet Burley Tobbaco, date from the 1900's to the 1930's. I think??? I have a early 1900's campbell's Mock Turtle soup (ewww!) spice tin, and a axle grease tin made by Gulf refining Co. I love old tins because of the old lithograph art on them. I love that kinda printing.

    What were the ingredients in the mock turtle soup?

    Ya know, I have no idea. I'm going to look it up on the internet.

    You don't have to look it up. I just thought it may have been on the label. I guess they didn't have to list ingredients back then. :)

    Hi, how or where can I find value of antique tins or old tins. Are there collectors or dealers to contact?
