Texaco Marine

I remember that auction and wondered what I was missing?

What would the sign and rack go for ? I know that pokerfrank usually offers some nice cans, but that just a little on the high side.

Here's another auction that should go high.

Beautiful NOS attentend's hat.

The can went for such a high price because of what it says on it...Don't forget that the USA has 10 times more gas and oil stuff than Canada...While it may be a prestine top dollar can..if it had US markings, it would not have sold for no-where's near that price, because of being more common in the US.. All it takes, is two avid Canadian collectors wanting the same item ( that they've never seen in that condition)...and the rest is Ebay history..


Imperial Oil collector..

????

There's lot's of Texaco/Havoline motor oil cans out there marked with McColl Frontenac on them, going for $50.00-$75.00. My guess is two not so's wanting a nice graphic marine can.

I think it is because it is an imperial quart as compared to a U.S. quart, not because of the McColl-Frontenac on them.
