136 cans for sale. Most are 2 gallon with some 2 1/2 gallon, 1 gallon, 1 30 gallon drum, some quarts and a 1 glass quart with metal spout. There are oil, antifreeze, grease and misc. cans. Some are full, never opened, most are empty and some have no lids. I have been collecting a few years and now ready to move on. Selling as a whole collection and will NOT split up. Located in east central Indiana. $8500 for instant collection!

...$8500 for 136 cans comes to $62.50 each, on average...


Looking for better Gulf items: signs, globes, cans and paper - especially porcelain Gulf flanges, and Gulf A-38 & A-62 ad glass...

I realize they are NOT museum quality cans but see cans of similar condition sell regularly online for around the price I'm asking per can. I know some cans are not worth the $55 per can but that some cans are worth more also. I don't think $55 per can is completely out of the ball park and I know I can always come down on price while negotiating but can't go up on price. I also realize that selling them individually would be the ideal way to sell them but I have elected to sell them as a whole collection and know that it takes someone with the resources to purchase an entire collection like that.

I think fellow members with experience are genuinely trying to help you sell your cans.

With all respect, we're way out of the ballpark, eating nachos after the game five blocks away from the stadium. Good luck.
