    Found this at the local antique store. Granger can full o' smoke for $6.50. The baccy is dry as tree bark and I'm not even sure its the original stuff. The tin is in excellent condition with a partial tax stamp affixed. How'd I do?

    Probably worth it just for the tin. Baccy might be a lost cause, but you never know. You could either try rehydration or just use it to extort something good out of a grange-head like RTOdhner :)

    Rehydrate it and smoke it. Then tell us how you did.

    But that tin is sweet. Even if the toby is cashed, the tin is more than worth your outlay.

    well, the tin is worth 6.50 if you think it looks neat enough to put on a shelf - certainly it's in good shape. There are a number of ways you can go about rehydrating tobacco if you want to try it, but chances are that depending on how old it is, it may not really be worth smoking. HOWEVER, it's certainly worth TRYING before throwing it out.

    If you get something smokeable, it was worth every penny!

    You certainly have to at least try some of it (after rehydrating). No way to know unless you do :D

    I'd give it a go. I've been surprised by the smoothness of reconstituted old tobacco. Lovely tin for $6.50 also.
