Featured are:

Mayo's Cut Plug 8 x 3-1/2 x 3-1/2" "lunchpail" empty tin showing only minor wear with exception to oxidation on the handle. The surfaces are fairly clean and bright, the paint is nearly full and the clasp, hinge and handle all function as intended.

Allen and Ginter's 4" high empty cylinder tin with 5" diameter showing full paint and bold colors. The plain lid shows moderate wear and the attached opening lever is oxidized but functions as intended. Half of the original U.S. Revenue stamp still clings firmly to the side next to the factory quality guarantee box.

Allen and Ginter's 4-1/2 x 3-1/4 x 2" empty tin showing light to moderate wear. The graphics are excellent and the hinged lid functions as intended.

Home Run Cigarettes unopened full pack showing typical indentions of the large panels, otherwise very attractive with an uncompromised wrapper and a nice shape.

Sweet Caporal Cigarettes full package of twenty-two showing light wear, including creasing on the end flaps of the sliding compartment tray. Original "Canada" tax stamp is firmly attached on the top edge and the box has a nice shape with bold graphics.

Plow Boy "Chewing and Smoking" empty tobacco pouch in better condition with a nice shape and bold colors. U.S. Revenue stamp featuring John Adams is attached but split.

Cameron & Cameron Co. Fatima Turkish Blend Cigarettes empty paper pack with top flaps absent. The graphics are bold against a clean surface on the front and the back is affixed with a "Series of 1910" U.S. Revenue stamp featuring DeWitt Clinton.

Richmond Straight Cut No.1 Cigarettes empty box showing considerable wear, including some surface loss on the lid at lower left. This box retains a desirable shape and the graphics are readily discernible. The bottom of the box is affixed with a "Series of 1910" U.S. Revenue stamp featuring DeWitt Clinton and there is also some minor writing on the plain field area of the box bottom.

Murad Cigarettes empty box showing vivid colors, a solid shape and minor traces of wear with deference to a tape repair of the paper hinge on the north edge panel.

(2) Helmar Cigarettes empty boxes, including one with intact paper hinge and one with separated paper hinge. Both show vibrant colors and minor traces of wear.
