Some recent things, have credit from a few trades so it's not really a purchase except the SPRT, a whopping $10 after the sale and my discount. Very pleased.

Oh and if I intend to to set aside and age some - should I leave in tin or jar it?

I would jar it.. but then I have a deep distrust of tin seals, particularly square tins.

I have had 3 failed seals. Two of them were G&H tins, one Peterson University Flake. All of them were square tins.

I jar everything except for the food grade McClelland tins which you no longer have to worry about.

Which reminds me, I have a box of Dunhill flake tins in storage I should get out and jar up one of these days.
