This is the perfect book for anyone wanting to know the price of an old tobacco container they may have. This book is meant only as a price guide and reference point and does not claim to have a complete book on tobacco containers. However, it does contain over 2800 photogrpahs of different containers from Canada, the U.S, and the rest of the World. With each picture there is a brief explanation and a price in U.S and Canadian dollars, this book is really worth having if you are a collector, buyer, sellor or student interested in tobacco containers.
