    Leave 'em be? Or jar the contents? Not sure about how airtight they are. What say you?

    The cans are a Peretti trademark. They rust and aren't meant to store tobacco.

    Keep the cans a souvenirs or keepsakes, I love them, but definitely jar the contents.

    Sounds like you have your answer above, so I'm just here to say that Peretti is really great.

    I bought a can of Cambridge Flake from Pipestud, nine or ten years old. Contents were fine and perfectly smokable. BTW, great tobacco.

    I've purchased many paint cans from Peretti's and have jarred them all except for four. I was going to run a personal experiment to see how they would do over the years. I'm glad to read Jerry's comment above. I feel better about my chances now.

    Not sure if they have changed any, but back in the 90's I had some around four or five years with no problem.
