    Someone chunked this beauty in the garbage most likely because it was stuck and wouldn’t open.Because of the neat looking architecture on the building and medieval knights jousting I couldn’t resist the temptation of dumpster diving and had a hoarders relapse.I took it home and when I shook it I told my wife it might have gold or treasure in it but she said that sound was just like what was between my ears “a box of rocks.” I got the torch out and put some heat to the lid and gently got it open without damaging it.All that was in it was fossilized cookies.Does anyone have any idea how old it is.

      Excellent graphics on that. Look for a UPC symbol. ,If you don't find one it means it is vintage. If you do find one it still has cool graphics. It is a bisket tin.

      Thanks fortapache,It doesn’t have a UPC and I’ve spent a couple of hours trying to chase down another one like this without any luck.I can’t believe what some people throw away as like you I think the graphics are to neat.Thanks again.
