Tony, that is a great looking can! From the 1920s... It would fit under the front seat of cars like Model T "fivver"...

A few have sold at auction, in the last few years... But, none that I remember in the condition of yours...

Maybe Jason (Esse's Garage) will have more of an idea of value?

You might want to PM him to ensure he has seen this thread?

That is one of the best condition ones I've seen.

Can't help you with value but there was a Company Of The Month feature on Oilzum from several years ago. The old pictures are gone but you'll find some info on the company history, and some recent pictures.

Nice can and like already stated one that would generate a lot of interest if offered up for sale.

It wouldn't take much to find out the current value of that can. List on e-Bay with no reserve and in 7 days you will be pleasantly surprised. Cans have been doing very well on e-Bay lately.

i would agree with that. ebay is currently bringing better prices on cans than any auction house or other venue.
