Gold dust tobacco

fougisJuly 23, 2011

Hi. While doing some cleaning up of an old attic, I found a gold dust tobacco tin. One side is fairly rusted and the other side is clearly visible. I have seen on the Internet it is from possible the 1920's. Any idea of approximate value and where to sell. With thanks. Gis�le

Without being able to see the actual condition and litho, it's really difficult to say. $1 - $10,000. Does it have a lid? Dents?

Hi. Just learned how to post pictures. The cover is there. Yes there are nicks and dents.

Hi. Thank you for info. I know the tin is not in great condition. I just want to know if it has any value. Else, I'll use it as a decoration.

very rough shape....but I think we might all be surprised at what someone would pay for it. Tobacco-ania is hot now.
Find someone who has bought that sort of stuff and ask them what you might get for it.

Yes, I would like it to be in better shape. I found it like that and I doubt I can remove the rust without removing the picture.

Tin is rougher than I would like to see it, but I would still be interested in it. What would you need to have for it? Thanks, Brian
