Surprises are so nice!

Last night I was out to dinner with good friends. The lady of the other party, Ryck, handed me a lovely package. I was taken by surprise and curiosity. Ryck knows my passion for all things Royal and Commemorative, so she gifted me with this vintage tin , a souvenir of Queen Elizabeth II's Coronation!! It is so pretty and in excellent condition and the timing is perfect considering the Jubilee in June. Isn't it wonderful to have friends!!! Thanks so much Ryck.

Here is the side. It has a hinged top.

Handsome and quite young, Prince Phillip or The Duke of Edinburgh as he was noted here.

This is the pretty top of the tin. It says Coronation Souvenir
June 1953

As you can see it was a tin of Scottish "biscuits" from Gray and Dunn.
