I collect WW II oil jars like the ones shown in the attached pictures, along with too many other things to mention, and was wondering if there was any source of information on what jars might be out there. It's hard to find good examples with nice labels so I would appreciate seeing some of the other jars that members might have in their collection.

Excellent Collection, Marshall; thanks for sharing!... Most of the bottles I have seen before.... The Valoco is one I am not familiar with... And the Coreco name, is stuck in the back of my memory but, I'm not sure why....
Mike that Purol, is very nice...
Looking for Tide Water/ Tide Water-Associated/ Tidewater items
Nice Purol Oil Jar Mike. I had a chance to buy one at Columbus last year but the seller wasn't sure if it was an original or not because the label was not a full wrap around the jar. I passed and still don't know if I made the right decision.
I have seen a blue labeled Lubrite jar in the past but it wasn't for sale. I would think that there were many more different brands made but the survivor rate is low because they were meant to be recycled and the labels are easily torn off.
Great looking Aero Mobiloil jar Dan. I need to find one for the collection.
Please post pictures if you have some that haven't been shown!
