    Is 100g tin the largest "real" tin you can buy these days? I like to collect tins, but it seems all larger tins now are paper or cardboard. Does any baccy come in bigger tins?

    GL Pease sells some of his blends in 8 oz and 16 oz sizes. Ditto Cornell & Diehl.

    I am looking for tins that are actual metal, not plastic, cardboard etc..., but instead of just buying old tins off ebay, I want the baccy too.

    If you want a new metal tin you could use a tea caddy

    I just saw one a couple of weeks ago that was very old fashioned looking. It had one of those top-center compression lids that press in instead of screw on. I can't remember who it was now... I'll try to look it up and if I find it I'll post it.

    Brad did you send us your crappy weather? It was been 99 degrees the last two days. Supposed to be a sweet high of 72 Monday though.

    If you just want some for display (and therefore they can be empty) check eBay. Someone is always selling an old Granger or HalfnHalf tin... I always thought the old tobacco tins that were "lunch pail" style were cool.

    LOL, 99 would be a cool front compared to the last few weeks of one-o-something. Today will hit 101, Sunday 100, but Monday does have a cool front ahead of it and will be 90*! Woo hoo, I'll have to cook something outside... :)

    If you're wanting them just for display, hit the antique and estate shops. They usually have a good selection of old toby cans, sometimes from as far back as the 1930's (before they were made from plastic).
