my grandfather was Clyde L. Herring who owned Herring Motor Company in Des Moines [and Atlantic] Iowa = I have more information about him but my main hope is to find out about some old auto-cans of the Hermoline variety. I have a few and while our daughter wants me to save some for her. I am not sure of their value or even if there is an interest, so thought I would post here...plus if anyone has any information about my grandfather or the company, I'm all ears!!!

Welcome to the forum. Post your question about your grandfather's company in the "General Petroliana Discussion" forum and maybe some one can help you with your research.

As far as the can values go, post that question in the "Petroliana Value Question" forum and you will probably get an answer. Try to post a picture for the best response.

Welcome aboard,
