Circa 1910 Mello Mint Tin

Starting Bid - $100.00, Sold For - $402.50

This is an item for the REALLY SERIOUS Mello Mint collector! (Casual Mello Mint collectors need not apply!) Collectors have always been fascinated by the circa 1910 E105 Mello Mint series. Whether it is because of their catchy name, the unusually thin stock on which they are printed, or their rarity, is hard to say, but they have always been on the radar of advanced collectors. If you think your Mello Mint collection is complete, think again! Offered is a circa 1910 Mello Mint tin, measuring 8 inches tall and 10 inches in diameter, designed to be used by candy stores to dispense the presumably very delicious Mello Mint treats. The tin has some minor rusting, but, overall, is in Excellent condition, with a very impressive display value. Accompanied by two E105 Mello Mint cards (Donovan, Gd and Shlei, Fr), provided for display with the tin. Reserve $100. Estimate $200/$300. SOLD FOR $402.50
