There is a special name for the field of collecting tobacco antiques called Tobacciana. Collectible tobacco tins typically date from the mid 1800’s to the early 1900’s and many of them even have the original tax stamps which allow for dating. Tobacco Tins are quite collectable because they were produced in many cases with beautiful artwork in up to 10 colors on paper labels, or later lithography, in interesting shaped canisters and there are hundreds of different brands and designs to collect.
