American Cigarette & Tobacco Tins

Postby muckaroon1960 » Sun Nov 19, 2017 7:23 pm

I have a growing collection of US Cigarette & Tobacco Tins and when I was in Bastogne back in the spring saw these in the 101st Museum, similar if not the same to the ones I have.

Hi Christopher, yes I have a collection of "John Player" cigarette tins. I would like to post them but unlike the American ones I have which were used during WW2 not sure if these would be of that era? Maybe these American tins are post war but they look very similar in shape and advertising to those I saw in Bastogne. :thumbsup:

I have a John Player tin, official issue, dated approx. 1940. Would this be of interest?

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: 'free of tax outside the US' was that still the case today Paul? :lol: or do they collect some form of taxation on even these types of transactions in the U.K.? If so you should have pointed out to the seller...hey look on the tin :lol:
Great additions.
