    All I really know about this tin is they were made one year with the words now king below the portrait and does anyone know of value on this tin ?

    At a recent auction I attended there were two of these for sale, one in near mint went for $700 and one rated 7.5-8 went for $215. Yours is in awful condition sadly, but it is a rare tin and might still bring $50-100 to someone just starting a collection and looking for a "Now King"

    Great find!
    My website at has tons of information on antique tobacco tins and I'm always around to help.

    Considering I give a dollar for it I'm cool with the condition
