Default Re: Humidor w/ copper lining?

Copper or tin was used quite often as a liner in pieces made from the 1920's-1940's. They were originally designed primarily for storing pipe tobacco, altho many were used for cigars as well.

The copper on that one is either new or been recently cleaned. I don't think I have ever seen one of these that wasn't oxidized with green corrosion from the cut up apples that were commonly used as a humidification device.
