    City Club Crushed Cubes Pocket Tobacco Tin

    This tin is different from most of the City Club pocket tins in that is is smaller than most pocket tins. It stands a 3.5 inches tall. There is a Union Made label on the bottom of the tin.

    "Strater Brothers Tobacco Co Brand.
    Burley Tobacco Co
    Incorporated
    Louisville Kentucky "

    I found this in a local shop.

    The ad is from The Saturday Evening Post July 5, 1913. You could purchase two ten-cent tins for 16 cents worth of stamps.
    Last photo is a picture of relatives in Georgia drying tobacco from their fields.

      This has some great graphics. Any idea of age?

      Caperkid, I just added an ad from 1913. Thank you!
    3. Caperkid, 4 years ago
      Wow nice shape for the age. These pocket tins are my favourite type of tins.

      Caperkid, There is a place near me that has thousands of pocket tins. Some are expensive but he has everything!
      It is called YSI in Youngwood, PA

      Caper, Saw that today and held it in my hand! This is where I got my VERY rare Ski-Hi cigar tin.

      Very nice. One of my fav American tins is the Times square tin. Or trout line tin, try hard to stick to Canadian ones but sometimes I can't help myself.

      Caper, Funny you should say that. I have it and posted previously.

      Wonderful Burley tin! My family has certainly grown our share of Burley back in the day. I haven't worked in the Burley fields since the 1980's and I definitely don't miss it:)

      jscott, I remember relatives in Georgia hanging tobacco to dry. One of my earliest memories

      jscott, See last photo of my relatives in Georgia with tobacco.
