    The tin looks like one for Gibbs Dentifrice (tooth powder).

    Nice finds zeller. I can confirm what PB says. The tin is the bottom half of a 'Gibbs Dentifrice' tooth powder tin. I have attached a picture of a whole one dug in the UK for you to compare it to Standard 'issue' to the British soldier.

    I like the mix of cases as well.

    Cheers

    Thank you guys and thanks Steve for posting your powder tin. It is amazing how that tin stayed in the soil and was virtually intact after 65 years
