    How old do you suppose this is?

    I found this at a garage sale a little while back and have been checking my boolits with them... But I got to wondering... How old do you suppose this can is?

    I have that same tin, 35 cal. , purchased in 1968. My first gas checks .
    I keep it because some companies use thin cardboard boxes that fall apart.
    50 years and that tin container still working .
