    If you recall my earlier posting about the Planters Peanuts tins, I have since learned that Planters was sending vacuum sealed cigarettes in them!
    This ensured dry, fresh protected cigarettes arrived overseas! While they may have been snackin on Peanuts they were also smoking Chelsea brand Cigarettes fresh from a Planters Peanut can! LOL!
    Tins were sent with a wrap around paper label stating that it is an Emergency Pack for Overseas Forces
    This unopened tin sold for $421.30 back in December 2000

    got a nice set of vintage USAAF stationary. The folder has a lot of wear at the fold and a few of the 12 letterhead sheets are yellowed, some of the envelopes have sealed themselves but... I likes it...

    That’s pretty cool stuff that is rare in any collection.
    Nice purchase.
