Collecting Old Tobacco Tins and Vintage Cigarette Packets

This web site is dedicated to the collection of Old Tobacco Tins, Vintage Cigarette Packets and Tobacciana and also provides information and historical facts to assist collectors in pursuit of the hobby.

  Visit the UK Library of Tobacco brands which contains more than 8000 brands distributed in the UK between 1870 - 1980 ( Free to use )

"LIVE" packets and tins

Unlike many well known sites, I still buy and sell vintage cigarette and tobacco tins and packets with the original contents still inside. See my items for sale

Got any questions?

If you want to know something about a tin or a packet, sign up and post your question on the Q&A Forum and let the collecting community provide the answer.
