The Sinclair parts of my collection! The opaline is a little beat I know, but hey we all have one that's a little rough!

An Ethyl globe and an uncommon lens,without the black outlined letters. I found this lens at Peotone last weekend.

Both end panels of an oil can rack, some clean quarts and a can I picked up at Peotone. Only ever saw one other. It was for a miniature engine like those used in model airplanes.

Wes looking back through your post you ask about the wood shiping box, had anyone seen the gallon can. You could very well be looking for a can that only reads Pierce oil co.S.A.. I have found some items mostly paper that proves they retained the Pierce Oil CO. S.A. in Mexico. Used along with the Rooster logo.How long? Still working on that. Check out this completed ebay listing 261796905164- 1930 sinclair map of Mexico. Hey maybe you won it!
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info. I saw a picture of the map before but didn't get this one. The mystery of Sinclair Rooster cans continues. Couple more odds and ends. The bear is sort of like a chalk statue, it says "Bear in mind, Sinclair oils". Not sure of its exact use, maybe a match holder? It is shown on page 17 of the Sinclair collectibles book. Seldom seen Sinclair spark plug and a two liter can I picked up this weekend at the 2015 Mason Dixon show.

Couple more pictures to add to this thread. The grease gun rack with the porcelain Indexed Lubrication sign has been posted before. The other two signs I recently bought. The one with the rounded top I got from Tom V at Iowa Gas. The rectangle one showed up here in Ohio.

Couple more items. The two signs were the ends of an A frame oil can rack, probably mid 1960s. The barrel end was cut from a 50 or 55 gallon drum and repainted. Fuel filter still in the box, from Deryl Chews collection.

Last few for today. When I was looking back through the pictures I posted a couple years ago, I noticed my garage still had drywall up. I put up the pine siding this spring some time. A lot easier to hang up stuff.

I think it is cool that there are more things added as time goes on. So here are a couple of mine.

I have these pieces in my collection, the box with the little flags I have no idea as to what purpose it had. It's dated Jan 13th 1938.

It also appears that Sinclair marked the globes as what lens were intended to be placed on them?
