Unused Tin Cup for Musical Washboard
Don't miss this chance to get a bright shiny durable tin cup for your washboard at a bargain price...
Why are these Tin Cups Selling So Cheap?
The price is so low because I was lucky enough to meet a seller who wanted to get rid of them. The seller and his brother-in-law acquired the tin cups at an auction. The cups apparently came from a store that went out of business - but I think the cups are factory seconds.
Durable Construction - Bright Shiny Finish
These cups are quite sturdy. In fact, they are among the most durable tin cups I have seen. Look close at the pictures and you will see that the top edge sports a fine evenly rolled lip. And the base features a fine and evenly square-pressed rim. Washboard artists will appreciate the shallow recessed bottom with a smooth solid rim.
So, are these Factory Seconds?
Curiously, the handles are a bit bent and lumpy. And their edges are unevenly rolled - not at all like the well-formed edges along the top and bottom rims. But the handle is solidly attached to the cup, which may or may not be an advantage since you might want to remove the handle anyway. Also, some sealant residue, and what appears to be light rust can be seen along the inside seams. These imperfections are why I think the cups are factory seconds. And that is good news. Because all-in-all, this is the perfect tin cup for a budget conscious washboard player.
Ten to twenty bucks is the price you will pay for a quality tin cup made by a modern tin smith.
So stock up now while the supply lasts. You won't find a better deal anywhere else.
Don't Drink From These Tin Cups
The cups show a rusty sealant residue along the inside seams. I do not know if the residue is sanitary or if these cups are safe to drink from or not. So don't drink from these cups.
In any event, these tin cups make a great sounding addition to your washboard - and that is what this is all about.
