Very nice indeed! They would make a great display addition to compliment a Ruger Old Army

That's a cool find. I notice that they were different years with differing lids and that box of text on the bottom of the left one. Thinking the one on the right is older. We love auctions, garage sales, flea markets etc. You never know what's going to turn up.

First off I love the Tins! They would look great displayed in my reloading room.

second Jays comment reminded me of something my father in law use to say to me..

"If I had your money I'd throw mine away!"

Never quite knew how to respond to that :?

Those tins are great looking. You didn't say if there is any powder in them.
I inherited a batch of reloading supplies with about 15 or so old tin, all with various amounts of powder. I keep them away from the house until I can really check them over.
A few are really narly and give me pause.
I'll set them up sometime and post a photo.
I don't think any are quite as cool as yours. Love the lettering!
