Barboursville, Virginia, USA, who sent me the photo is trying to discover the age of this tin. She writes:
"Do you, by any
chance, know anyone who would know about this tin design and its date?
I have a feeling it was one of Duncan's first one pound tins…it looks
very old…physically and in its design."

If you think you know when this tin might have been
manufactured and sold, please e-mail me, then I'll pass your message
on to Virginia.
Thank you. - Peter
