    I can help you with this one, but will need a few photos of the Box (particularly of the
    Front, Back, Top & Bottom).

    What you probably have there is a late 1920's-Late 1930's 'tamper-proof' tin: These
    were largely produced as a result of Bootleggers, who would refill used bottles and then
    resell them as New....largely to beat out the tax-man, but also as a way to simply sell their illicitly made whisky.

    I can usually date & appraise most bottlings from 1900-1960, and have you an answer ni
    24-48 hrs.
