Big fan on flake medallions. But I noticed the tin goes down quite fast. So I wanted to know how many coins are there in a 50g tin.

The tin of Davidoff medallions I'm currently smoking is quite moist; moister than Escudo and LBF that I have smoked. Since it is sold by weight you get less tobacco when it is moist as opposed to drier offerings.

My coins weigh about 2 grams each. So 25 (+ or -) coins per tin. Sound about right?

Peck: I don't think they are. The LBF is grassier, more hay-like, and not quite as rich or as smooth in flavor, and it has less earth, too. Of course, aging in a tin can aid in the differences, and I find LBF's flavor immature in bulk. It needs age. But the differences are varied enough to convince me that they aren't the same.

When JimInks writes about tobacco I always read his comments in the voice of James Earl Jones.
You're that definitive, Jim.

Ericusrex: sounds about right. And cool name btw. I has my suspicions but wanted to make sure without opening another tin

prairiedruid: it would. But I don't think moisture will round up to a full coin. I just needed an estimate of how many smokes I can get out of it given that I normally pack two coins

JimInks: an honour to have a comment of yours. And I read your comments in Vincent Price voice. Especially your elegant 'what are you smoking posts'

Thanks for starting this thread. I've been wondering about that other medallion role producer, while enjoying LBF. I'll have to try those Davidoff medallions.

Do so, they are quite great
