Found on a friend's farm a 56 gallon Standard Oil barrel. Looks to be galvanized. Without posting pictures can anyone give me a value on it? It looks to be in really good condition? Thanks JP
I paid $225 for a Standard 56 gallon barrel. It has Standard Oil stamped on the face in black. I think that’s a fair price for a rare barrel.
............ if your happy with what u paid great. IMO there not worth much, less than $100 around here. Chris
I would have to agree with Chris.
They are often sold at old farm auctions around here and usually bring around $50.
Once in a while they will jump up and bring more but never over $100.
I agree $100 or less. There are/were 2 near me on Craigslist for $75 each, recently.https://porthuron.craigslist.org/for/d/standard-oil-steel-drums-2/6756961208.html
I cut the top off and hung on the wall and put valves in it. I used the rest for a heavy duty rain barrel.
