The designs on the tin are embossed.

Condition: Very Good. There is a very small dimple on the bottom of the tin and a few discolored spots also. The sail of one ship has minor discoloring. This ship is on the side of the tin. The tin's bottom and inside are silver colored.

Weight: 10 Oz's.

Markings: Embossed on the bottom is 'CONTAINER MADE IN WESTERN GERMANY' Please note that the embossed lettering is very difficult to make out. I had to use a loupe as the lettering runs together. The tin is numbered on the back gold colored lid rim HK with a symbol and 473/1

The tin is a greenish blue marbled color with Gold Sailing ships in full sail. There are Shields on each bottom corners with a graceful gold design bordering the bottom edge. The bottom has four small feet that have been embossed in the metal.
