Listing is for a FULL 1 pound metal tin of Hershey's Cocoa. The entire can is metal, not just top and bottom. It has recipe on side for the famous Cocoa Fudge and on opposide side it has recipe for Hot Cocoa. Back of can has recipes for Fluffy Cocoa Frosting and Chocolate Town Special Cake. It is item number 51, mfg by Hershey Foods Corporation of Hershey, PA. 17033 U.S.A. The store price stamped on the top is 68 cents. T is no date of manufacture but it might be possible to determine when the company stopped using the metal cans and get a rough estimate. It was after about 1962 since a zip code is printed on the can. Obviously, I am selling this as a collectible: it is probably too old to use!

The can has a few light scratches but no dents. It has a little corrosion at some of the joints but not bad; no rust as such. The top has been lightly cleaned; the price stamp still shows nicely. It is a nice collectible for sure.

Weight is 18.8 ounces so package weight will be 2 pounds. U.S. buyer pays actual cost of shipping via parcel post, plus .75 packaging. Ins. optional.

International buyer pays package and ship cost of 35.00 by Priority Mail International. Insurance included. (Canada buyer pays 24.50)
