I recall seeing a couple of these cans in the past 5 years, but for some reason I was thinking they were smaller than this one (maybe like a 1 quart size). If that is the case I would think the 1 gallon would be more desirable (better graphics and less produced).

One gallon of metal polish sure seems like it would go a long way.

To answer the title question: My guess is in the 4000 range.

It's at $2900 with a few days to go. The current high bidder has 14% of his bid activity with the seller of this can (according to eBay profile). What, if anything , does that imply to OGers?

They were produced in pint, half gallon, gallon, and the small one Alex just posted in BOTW. I still have photos at home of these being produced on the line. I think it was earlier than the 1918 stated. 1912 or 1914 is coming to mind.

Looks like a hole in the side of it, wonder how big that hole will be for his grandson. : )

I don't understand why people bid so many times. Just bid what you want to pay at the start or bid near the end if it is still in your price range.

One reason not to bid yor max right away is some poeple may try to push the price up by chipping away at it. Some poeple like to "lay in the weeds" and bid last. You can track what items people are bidding on if you know their ebay name.

When I was collecting vintage movie posters on ebay 1998-2004 I would only bid at the end. Back then I believe many fellow collectors would search what I was bidding on and bid also.

I stopped bidding early for that reason but also not wanting to add to the bidding number as it would also draw attention.
