Some years ago I was scouring eBay for old sealed tobacco tins. I had better luck than you might think. I have the 14oz. tins of Half & Half and an 8oz. tin of Willoughby Taylor. All are vacuum sealed with the key winder opener.
I had a double of the yellow H&H with the green and Black label. I opened it a couple years ago. The tin hissed when I popped it. The tobacco was still moist. Taste was decent if muted. Kind of sweet and mild. I shared it around on the Grey Fox forums and got favorable responses. It's "a cargo of contentment".
I'm pretty sure that the three H&H tins are tight. The green label has some rust spots. But I don't think any go through. The green and red tin has a UPC code. Old price tag says "Gary's Price $4.30". So I guess that must be...late 60s or 70s? It has the weight at 14oz.
The two yellow wood litho H&H tins don't have the weight shown, but they must be 14 0r 16oz. Tins weigh the same as the red and green one. From old H&H ads around on the web I'm guessing these are 1930s-40s.
The Willoughby Taylor I think is 1940s.
Now the tough part. What are they worth? Hard to say. I'll assign an arbitrary trade value and you can all comment on my being high or low.
For each of the H&H tins, I'd like 2 pounds of C&D's Old Joe Krantz. P&C is having a 20% off sale on C&D products, OJK is priced at about $30 a pound. You could order the tobacco and have it sent to me. I'll send the H&H to you. Or make a big order for yourself to get free shipping and forward me the OJK.

The Willoughby Taylor is tougher. It's a smaller quantity. The tin has some rust spots that look a little iffy. But it is intact and it has the tax seal. I'd like one pound of Old Joe Krantz.
