Normally 2 gallons cans just aren't that sought after to demand such strong prices but there seem to be a number of them getting really decent money lately. A shift in interest or some new players maybe. I don't know about the Phillips but it just seems to good to be true. If the solid orange can design with with the big emplem and black ribbon (but I don't know if there was a 2 gallon made) were selling I could see these prices but this design was used from the late 30's clean thru to the early 50's and of the early phillips designs, this one is rather generic compared to the Trop Actic designs. Condition is awesome.....but not $440 worth

I Don't think so, Private bidder was upping the bids by $20. he did not post a High bid and walk away, HE was driving it up. Sounds like Mr. Goodguy got caught, He must've been reading OldGas

I spent some time last night looking at the bidders on quite a few of the auctions that were high. Two bidders were running the auctions up. One with ID of 1##1(350) was bidding up the other every time he bid. He had around 400 bids in the last 30 days. Very few in gas and oil. The other bidder ID R##R(29) was upping the bids by $5 to $10 at a time. He had 1300 or so bids for the 30 day period. He was bidding on mostly gas and oil. The interesting part was that quite a bit of it was listed in Advertising Petrol which tells me that he may live in the UK or Australia. Just my Thoughts. Mitch

I guess someone overseas with some capital and a strong desire to collect from the inventory state side could drive up prices especially if price was no object.
