Vintage Tobacco Tins

Collectible packaging that contains tobacco can be listed as long as the package is completely sealed, and you follow and include all of the statements in the list below in your listing. We recommend copying and pasting this disclaimer directly into your item description. This is due to the rules set-forth by the payment processing company. We do not sell tobacco products only yht collectible tins the tobacco was originally shipped in.

–  The value of the item is the collectible packaging, not the tobacco itself.
–  Even though the package has never been opened, the tobacco inside is not for consumption.
–  The collectible packaging is not currently available in stores.
–  The buyer must be at least 18 years old. (As the seller, I’m responsible for making sure this rule is met.)
–  Both the buyer and the seller are following all applicable laws and shipping regulations for this transaction.

If you include photos in your listing, you have to show the actual item for sale—stock photos aren’t allowed.
