Found this in my travels through West Texas; I anticipated the graphics too be cool as I could faintly see what was under the "black stuff". First picture is how I found it and the second is after an initial first cleaning; going to take a bit more elbow grease!

Thats cool you dont see many oil cans with two yokes of oxen on them.
An interesting graphic indeed.

Very few PIONEER cans are found in better condition. Can company either didn't clean the tin good or used cheap ink in the printing process.
