This is a
gorgeous tin and is absolutely nearly plum full of the original Martin's
Varnish.  It has a teensy leak in the lid seal, so when I bought this
can, it had dried up varnish around the top seal.  I then cleaned it
off, and did some light refurbishing, removing the unsightly black, dust
infested residue of varnish. 

Then the can
looked great and presentable.  3 days later, I walked by and noticed
that some fresh varnish had seeped out of the top and dripped down the
neck and started to cure.  I was very glad that this happened,
because now I could see and show you how beautiful the varnish color is. 
Seen in the photo below, now you know what your next violin will look
like. 

The varnish
dripped down the neck and is starting to dry and seal off the minute leak. 
If this sells, and I ship this to you, it will be vacuum sealed with
several layers of protection so that no leaking will occur. 

The bottom of
the tin is seen here.  It reads "Continental."

The backside
has some of the label worn off. 

Please read
these side labels.  It is important and very interesting. 

After using the
varnish for your gorgeous wooden creation, you will have a wonderful
vintage tin with excellent visual appeal for display. 

Careful opening
the lid.  I am not sure exactly how it opens.  I think it might
pop off with a little twist to help it.  At any rate, you might want
to add a little bit of turpentine around the brim to help loosen the seal. 
Take your time, don't rush, and you'll get it right.  If all else
fails, poke a little hole in the top of the lid and cork it off with a
rubber nipple.
