Wwii Planters Tin: Very unusual unopened WW II era 8 oz. size sealed vacuum pack Planters can. This tin has a wrap around paper label stating that it is an Emergency Pack which actually contains Chelsea brand Cigarettes for Overseas Forces and was used in order to save tin and to make sure that the cigarettes arrive in good condition. Planters used cardboard during the War (to conserve metal) and probably donated these cans to the war effort. Most unusual and interesting piece.
