    Someone selling an old tin of Capstan over here.

    In the Q&A section they proudly state it's 50 years old and still has the contents....open I see so I'll be giving it a miss.

    How much is that UK Crawford, to be fair the baccy looks in good nick, might be worth a punt depending on price?

    Edit! Not 50 yrs old though as it's 50 grms, should be 2oz.

    It's about 10 Ally and the P&P is another 6.

    Not worth it in my opinion especially as it's been opened. Agreed about the age. When I first came to live here permanently they were selling Capstan in the same style tin so it's not that old.

    In fact it's more recent than the 2009 I posted about above.

    Still have been a good buy if it hadn't been opened.
