This is a tin proof for the 'body' of the 1993 Hershey Milk Chocolate collectible can.
Tins by their very nature can have minor flaws. Small scratches, dust or small bubbles in the ink, tiny dings, minor rust, etc. If you'd like to know if the tin proof you'd like to purchase has any flaws ask me before purchasing and I'll shoot a close up pic of any flaw before you purchase it. Since you can't buy these tin proofs anywhere else except through me, even with minor flaws they are still highly collectible.
These look really nice framed. Look in my BluJay e-store for some of the other tin proofs that I have to offer, some of which are framed to get an idea of what these tins can look like when framed.
I'm willing to negotiate offers on multiple tin proof purchases.
When I still had my brick and mortar gallery/frame shop back in Pennsylvania I used to frame hundreds of tins for the packaging manufacturer that made them (J.L.Clark). Then they would give the framed tin proofs back, as thank you gifts, to the companies that gave them the contracts to make the packaging.
Companies like Nabisco, Hershey, Wolfgang, Crayola, McCormick, Wrigley, etc., etc.
I have extra tin proofs in stock for all of the one's I framed.
I have several years of the Oreo tins framed as well as Milk Bone Dog Biscuits, Stella D'oro Cookies, and others.
Before a tin is formed and made into what you see on the store shelves it is printed flat as a proof. The customer would be called in to approve or disapprove the way the tins would look. It's the proofs that I would frame for J.L. Clark. Sometimes I'd frame just the lids, sometimes the body of the tin, sometimes both.
I've been an art dealer and a professional picture framer for 21+ years, and I’m a retired Professional Photographer so if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

In most cases small items will be shipped USPS Priority.
Medium size items will usually be shipped by FedEx.
For all Framed art insurance will be charged to the customer to equal the amount of their purchase.
No returns will be accepted unless I, for some unknown reason, would ship the wrong item. BUT to insure that doesn't happen I take a digital picture of all items as they're packed and another after it's packed to show the customer name and address and invoice.
If an item arrives damaged you, the customer, will have to deal with the shipping company insurance. If you choose not to insure an item, FAIR WARNING, you're just out of luck.
