Brinkmann, Meisel, & Recker Tobacco Tin, St. Louis, MO. Circa 1920

Here is a neat old tobacco tin from a long defunct tobacco cigar manufacturing company which was based in Saint Louis, Missouri in the early 1900’s. Due to the long length of names from the three owners, the brand was simply shortened to B.M.R. Obviously it was easier to ask for an abbreviated name cigar, however, one can only surmise that a name like B.M.R. was not the best brand name to market, potentially helping the brand’s demise over time. LOL.
