    I stumbled across a 100 oz tin of Frog Morton so I bought it. Just wondering if there is a way to tell how old it is like there is for a Dunhill tin. Anyone know?

    If I were to date a tin of Frog Morton, I would start with picking a nice setting, maybe a swamp or a pond where there were lots of flies. Then I'd try to steer the conversation in a direction where Frog could get a chance to talk freely about whatever Frog likes to talk about. If that all works out, who knows, does one pop the lid on a first date?

    Smoking is one of the leading causes of all statistics.

    A post from two years ago had this to say:

    I bought some dusty Frog Morton yesterday with the date 450211. I know this means 45 (Blend) 02 (Batch) 11 (Year).

    I just acquired a tin and my two ending numbers are 17, so I assume mine is from last year.

    Excellent thread.

    Techie - correct. Last two digits are the year.

    The last two digits of the six digit number on the tin bottom is the year. This is true for most McClelland tins, unless there are four digits, then that is the year.

    Pulling the top off would be an exciting way to start.

    First, thanks for the hilarious response. I was thinking of something along the same lines as I typed and had a good laugh reading the response.

    Second, thanks for the information response. The bottom of my time says 452411. Now I know it's from 2011.

    Careful with the kissing, some frogs turn into a prince. I don't know if that is your thing.

    Indeed! That was fine up until about 2000.... Now you can get video'ed, arrested and pilloried.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
