This is my oldest can. In the center. Does anybody have any idea on it's age?

I picked it up at a weekend only antique mall. The booth is full of old gas and oil stuff. All his 40'-70's stuff was priced high but this was at a decent price and looked older than my other GULF cans.

...the can is from the early 1930's...


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

Got any more 2 gallons besides that Pennsey? LOL


Good oil cans don't wait for people, people wait for them.

Yes, I recently purchased a small Amoco drum for $2 that was full of old 2 gallon cans. I am mostly car care and quart can collector along with signs and pumps. I couldn't pass on the drum. The Lehigh can was on the side of the road a free-be must of fell off a vehicle going to a flea-market. I have 20 wooden coke, 7-UP and Pepsi crates I intend to display on the garage wall. The open crates fit 8 quarts nicely. The cross-bar crates hold old car care products just as well. The 1 and 2 gallon can I find on the way will go on upper shelves. Got the old Mobil drum for $4 at a garage sale last year. Funny how stuff your not looking for finds a way to your house.
