Last year in Sept. 2012 there was a massive auction of old tobacciana in Norfolk England. it's great seeing this stuff, many 1ounce packets still wrapped in cellophane, many cutter-top tins that looked well preserved, and most of it sold for farthings on the pound considering what the current market is...
Lot#637 sold for: £30.00
Lot #551 sold for: £25.00
Lot#500 sold for: £35.00
You can still look thru the auction archive, most the tobo stuff starts at lot #500
...here's a news story about the auction:
Sutton Windmill and Broads Museum collection to be auctioned off
...and perhaps this ebay seller attended the auction because he's been selling lots of old packets:
look at these beautiful unopened packets!
