Will's "Scissors" tobacco was introduced in April 1898 and is one of their oldest brands. Their cigarettes introduced around 1900 and still manufactured in India and Bangladesh. I often wonder how they select their more unusual brand names like "Scissors"!!!!!! It is a little scratched and worn on top but quite a rare tin.
Great rare tin. i have had the signs form india as late as the 1960's. Al.

Oh my gdd. I never noticed that. I'm just going to pretend it's Welsh with their lack of vowels.
But seriously, is it a repro or was it just meant for the Indian market?
I think you could well be right, non-familiarity with roman alphabet could well result in spelling mistakes on goods manufactured in India.
