David,
I have noticed the tins with thier contents seem to sell for good money, well worth looking after!

That's a nice item to have in your collection.

I have one containing the chocolate but I am not quite sure what to do with it. I am loathed to discard but 110 year old chocolate?? Suffice to say, the Ziploc bag came in very useful.

Best wishes
David

That sounds good advice. I don't think I could bring myself to ever discard the contents.

I'll photograph the tin and show you how they survived the years.

Best wishes

Yes please do.
I am sure the chocolate of 113 years ago had less preservatives than todays offerings :lol:

Paul,

Here are the pictures of the contents of the chocolate tin. On the last, the maker's name, Cadbury, is clearly visible.

Kind regards
David
