  Shanklin Cigarette Case pic2.JPG - SHANKLIN CIGARETTE CASE - Polished aluminum cigarette case, marked on bottom SHANKLIN MFG. CO. SPRINGFIELD, ILL., 3 x 2 ¼ x 1 in. marked advertisement GENERAL BETTER LEADPRODUCTS with GENERAL in red letters, enclosed ad flyer by the General Lead Mfg. Co., Denver, CO, mint condition; case is special gift from my good Alaska friend Neil Tysver  (The Shanklin Mfg. Co. was a well known manufacturer of carbide miners lamps - see pics in cap lamps - but also produced other metal items; the cigarette case shown here is one of those items; it is thought that this case was produced in the 1920s to diversify into other products as the carbide lamp market started to decline; the General Lead Mfg. Co. was located in Denver at 2132 Market Street from at least the early 1920s till at least the late 1940s with H.E. Guido as president; they supplied solder, Babbitt metal and plumbers’ lead goods; see Johnson, Eureka #12, p 38 for a photo of similar case)
