Sorry for the confusion guys. I see now that in the description it does say rare orange. I thought it was a faded red. I have never seen the orange version, just the red one that has the dent he is also selling.

Email the seller to try and find out about the orange version, Craig Palmer the seller is a super nice guy.

Don, I did a little research and found an orange version in "Collecting Oil Cans". Above it is a red version and I thought I might be on to something where "1 quart net" appears on the orange can and "Therm-Charged" appears on the red can, both above the emblem. But the ebay seller's red can also has the "1 Quart Net". According to the book, the red "Thermo-Charged" is book- dated 1938 and the orange can 1946. In this time span, it is possible the "Thermo-Charged" was dropped. These two examples are the only ones of this style shown. No blue/green. The book is kinda old now and never really impressed me, but I would venture to say that there is an orange can.

Good luck Don. Let us know if you win....or not. We are a curious bunch here!

Scott, I think I have seen the blue/green version and after reading my previous post, it may have appeared, by my comment, it did not exist because it was not in that book. There is a LOT of cans not in the book. I think there is a Volumn 2 that has been published. I know there is a blue/green version and a posting for others to see would be great...after you get off work (well, kind of). LOL

I can remove the bottom/top of cans, remove MOST of the dents then re-seal/lid [I have some N.O.S. tops/bottoms, also new plain lids] the cans. 4oz, 1qt, 1gal [6 1/2"dia.] & 5qt cans.
I have done several for Craig Palmer, and a few for others on this site.

Don, I did a search for completed Texaco Aircraft cans and the one that ended last night was produced from 1968-80. One good thing about Texaco cans is that they are dated. Once you receive the can, there should be a date on it. Nice can.
