Gold dust tobacco

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.

Here are your pics. Just hover cursor over the picture and you should see some codes in boxes below the picture. Just LEFT click on the one that says HTML Code and you will briefly see copied flash.

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
