Welcome
For Dr Grabow smokers worldwide. Remember, if you have more than one, you\'re a collector. Well, maybe not, but it\'s worth considering.
Half& Half tub
Took my break at an estate sale today. Ad said they had tools and I've been looking for a shovel and such outdoor tools on the cheap ( I sold or gave away everything when we lost the house and moved into the apartment ). Picked up a shovel, axe, limb trimmers, crowbar and an old large fixed blade knife at a buck a piece. Of course I had to look around a little. Glad I did!

Never saw one like this before. Top twists and locks into place. Kinda neat! They wanted 5 but took 3 bucks.

Nice! Are you gonna fill it with Half and Half? I have a plastic and a metal Prince Albert tub / can which I loaded up with the original contents.

That ran across my mind Benton. If I can get it cleaned up real good I think I will. I have an old PA tin tub, but it's in rough shape, rusted inside and faded outside. I still have it on a display, but you couldn't keep baccy in it. I'd like to see the plastic PA tub you have.

Here you go. This is what PA comes in now. Seals tight.

You could also fill it with these...

@Benton: Oh, okay. The PA tub is the current Middleton tub. I thought maybe you had something older, more vintage. I gotta tell ya, those Middleton tubs are great!! They keep tobacco fresh for a long long time!! I love 'em!

@Joeman: I had the original brown Barrel of Monkeys when I was a kid!! Very Happy

I have a pristine older metal tin with the built in lever for opening. Rust free inside.
A $5.00 eBay purchase when I still had a job and purchasing power.

I remember those metal tubs still being on the store shelves but never did buy any. Wish I had. I always went with the metal tins as they were measured out and easy to carry. I was in a huff when they went to the foil pouches as I didn't like them as well. Still don't. The new tubs are great for keeping tobacco fresh. They keep tobacco better than any humidor I have ever had. And they let me get my big fat hands inside to load my pipe. I don't remember ever seeing a Half and Half tub like Wildcat has. Must not have been many made.

@Benton: man, that is a nice PA tin tub and at 5 bucks you stole it! Mine is a train wreck, lol! Think I paid 2 or 3. You definitely got the better deal!

@ Kentuck: +1 on your humidor comment and +1 about being able to get  your hand in there to fill. Yes sir!  Push those lids once or twice and the baccy stays fresh and easy to fill a bowl. Boy oh boy I miss those discontinued blends like the Kentucky Club line and Sugar Barrel.
