A unique M.J.B. coffee can made into a drinking mug. Obviosly a make-do created by a tinsmith for personal use possibly during difficult times oe even a not so lucky Gold miner.The handle was expertly disigned. Max James Brandenstien began his coffee business in 1881 in San Francisco California and still thriving today.The can is complete with the original tin lid,slight surface rust but still clean paint intact and shinny inside since the lid remained with the can.
