Came across these along with the Wayne 90 . They came with bronze spigots and look to be zinc coated. Patent date is 1905 ; but pretty sure not THAT old. Are they worth more than scrap?

They are a hundred years old or pretty close. Their size and the amount of space required to display them, makes them less desirable.

I've heard of collectors cutting the end lid of and painting it and then highlighting the lettering in a different color. Then placing the spigot in place and hanging it on a wall as a display.

Check the old threads. I seem to remember someone selling some of those a year or so ago.

I have sold at least 20 of those over the years. $50 - $75 each.
