NO LONGER PRODUCED! Here's what may be a bargain treat for the collector of very rare full and sealed pipe Tobacco tins; it is a full SEVEN OUNCE tin of one of the world's most famous and no longer produced blends, Balkan Sobranie No. 759. The tin remains factory sealed but I hear more than the usual movement when I shake the tin. Upon examination, I believe that the seam on the side of the tin under the wrapper has been compromised. Additionally, there are some rust spots (superficial as far as I can tell but no guarantees) on the bottom of the tin. This will lower the collector value considerably, so this one may be a real bargain for someone.See the photos for more information regarding this very rare tin. The tin side notes the address as 65 Kingsway, London. That location was Gallaher's headquarter from 1974-1986. When Gallaher's took over the blending they produced just a small run of these larger, seven ounce tins and that is why they are so rare. We can easily determine that this tin was made sometime between 1980-1986 after Gallaher's acquisition of Sobranie.Itwill make a fine addition to any tin collection!
