Title Bayuk Bros. Inc.

Description Farragut Cigars metal circular container. The body of the can has a paper label all around. On the label, both front and back have an upper body picture of Admiral Farragut. On his background, a picture of a scenery with the sea, a lighthouse, a flag and a building on top of a cliff as well as a house to the man's left. To his right, the picture of a large ship. On both his sides there is a picture of a branch of tobacco leaves above a bronze color circle.On both sides of the container there is a blue anchor and the words "Admiral 10c Straight".Below, both sides contain a notice inside a golden boarder square, but incriptions are different. There is blue paper seal that had been broken and thus cut in half. It appeared to say "50 Cigars 50 Class C Act and 1926 Series". The lid is meant to be detached, but I could not remove it. It's gold with a paper label on top with same picture of man in the front and word "Farragut" twice. Bottom is gold.

Summary Fair

Assessor Samanta Pugh

Notes Paper label is dirty. On some spots the paper was teared off exposing the gold metal. Pictures and words are very clear though. Paper label on the lid is more damaged, a lot of it on word "Farragut" with red background. Also smudges and dirt on it. RA significant amount of rust can be seen on the exposed metal portion of the lid as well as on very bottom of can. The metal gold bottom also has several scratches of various sizes.
