I was cleaning out one of my tool boxes today and came across a couple old tobacco tins that I though some of you might like to see. I use them to keep small drills and bits in. Doubt they are worth anything especially after all these years but they are still history.

rothnh - I have never tried the Murray's version but enjoy the previous (rectangle tin) version very much. The current version in the square tin is a fine flake but it is topped less and is a lighter, larger flake. To me it is not as unique as the rectangular tinned version.
Is the Murray's version a dark sweet flake? How does the topping compare to say, ennerdale?

Nice to see your family stuck with Belfast production tobaccos :) My grandad always kept tins for screws and drill bit's etc. Besides the tobacco tins, Brylcream tubs were utilised for that purpose too.
