Alphabetical Listing of Many, Many Tins to Collect

Dear "Chip",

Hi. I came upon your site while seeking information on an item I recently obtained. I have a bottle of whiskey which is still encased in an attractive tin. There is a key mounted on the top of the 8 inch tin. The tin has an elliptical cross-section. The whiskey's brand name is "CHICKENCOCK" and is a Canadian Rye Whiskey, bottled in Montreal. It has a chicken on the front and the distillery on the back. Patent Nos. 256335, 272658, 284023 This unopened one pint whiskey tin was found while demolishing an old house. It was hidden behind a false back to a foldout ironing board compartment. It was reputed to have been stashed there since prohibition times! Do you know the age and approximate value of this item? I'd greatly appreciate any information that you may have, and would gladly offer you an opinion if you should ever have a question regarding Native American stone artifacts.

Thank you,

Bob Byard
