    One of our contractors at my work collects old pipe tobacco tins and heres some he gave me.
    Wish I had smoked these so I could put a taste to the picture. Velvet is still around I may have to pick some up.

    Very nice!
    I wish I kept all those tins from years ago! You might be aware that the design of tobacco tins in Europe has been completely ruined by government health warnings which must cover at least one third of the tin!!!!!!! Bloddy do-gooders!!!!!:mad:

    I know what you mean, but for all the people who can't decipher the German language, I tell them the writing on my 3 Nuns tin means "This Tobacco Helps You Pick Up Chicks".

    They usually then say something like "Guess it didn't work for you, eh?".
