"Major" find? Great Eastern oil co. - Thu Jan 26 2012 03:38 PM


Sorry couldn't resist the post title, Picked up a neat Major 1 pound grease can. Did a google search for the "Great Eastern oil co." From St Louis but it didn't come up with much. and a search here yielded zip. Appears the logo is a drum major and shield.

Anyone know any history on this company? or collect it?

Thanks for the info, Jay.
Now I'll have another St. Louis company to look for.
