Recently found this flattened Polly 1 qt can and have no idea how to price it. As you can see it's been cut and rolled flat but has also been uniformily crimped. It presents really well with nice colors and wonder if it could possibly be put back into a can? In the condition it is in I dont know how to price it. Feel free to send me your offer.
Thank you
Michael

IMO - this being uniformily crimped makes the possibility of this being put back too a can is null .. ... cool

I'm glad it's not here at my house right now. I'd be very tempted to lay the painted side down on a towel or something and start working it with a rolling pin. Not saying it would work but I'd have to try

I actually re-rolled a Polly quart with the same crimping a couple of years back for a friend. Even after running it through my 12" slip roll machine a few times I couldn't flatten it perfectly smooth. Unfortunately I no longer have a photo. Maybe with increased pressure from a more industrial rolling machine you might get the crimps flat but you may also damage the paint.

Why did they crimp these, that seems weird to me? I could see how someone might unroll it if they didnt know better.

Thanks
