RARE Vintage Gardner Johnson's Jumbo Peanuts Tin Can 14 oz. Key Wind Style with the key stub on the bottom. Johnson Nut Company, Minneapolis, Portland and Winnipeg. Tin made by Canco. I think this dates from the 1950's. I have not been able to find any other examples of this or anything similar from this company. I found an old photo of their factory in Minneapolis dated 1926.

There are some scratches and paint loss areas. A few small rust spots on the top of the lid. Numerous light rust marks on the inside.


In the early 1980's, I saw a display case of old tins in the reception area at the Fleming Foods Portland Division. Being in the grocery business, I thought it was a pretty impressive collection, so I started my own tin collection! That collection grew and grew to be many times larger than the Fleming collection. Now it's time to start selling it off. I hope the buyer enjoys it as much as I have :)
