First used in the 1870's Chewing Tobacco Tin Tags were some of the first brand identification for commodities. These colorful gems were developed to prevent the substitution of inferior tobacco for the premium brands of their day. They survived to be collected, in part, due to the fact that many brands redeemed tags for premiums. From time to time we find someone's box of tags (usually their favorite brand) in a barn attic or cellar.
