I feel foolish asking this question, but here goes; I just received a tin of Wilsons of Sharrows Kendal Brown, from a source that I've not ordered from before. The tin was difficult to open, because there is a small amount of rust on both the lip of the tin, and the inside of the lid. (Making it hard to "twist" them) The snuff is much dryer than I remember it. It did have the familiar green tape around it. The tin has an EEC warning on the bottom of the tin. There is no warning on the lid, leaving the Wilson's Nobleman visible from head to toe. Is this a newer tin that just developed an air leak? Is it an ancient tin, from back before they placed the warning on the front? How long ago was that? I guess this is what I get for ordering with an unfamiliar shop, but Mars has been out for almost a month.
