Not able to do this as it is not in my possession but thanks

Hi, Is the tin brass or silver?. I posted an example below is this what you have?. Thanks Mike

Hi, After my these tins you would receive an embossed brass box, one ounce of pipe tobacco, twenty cigarettes, a pipe, a tinder lighter, Christmas card and photograph but quite early on the committee in charge received strong representations that an alternative gift should be made available for non-smokers. After some discussion the Committee agreed that non-smokers should receive the brass box, a packet of acid tablets, a khaki writing case containing pencil, paper and envelopes together with the Christmas card and photograph of the Princess and have a value in today's market at auction with similar examples in good condition £75.00 + to excellent condition £150.00 + with all contents depending on the collector or consumer. I hope this helps you. Thanks Mike
