I call them Greek Key cans. I believe the yellowing is age. Some of these are NOS and still have a nice shine and are the most white. Then again it probably has to do with how they were stored for the past 85+ years

Very nice Dan! These are getting hard to find in any condition now a days... I'll keep my eyes peeled for yeah.

I like the yellowing of the paint better then the white. Just looks cool IMO. Good luck with your search! Looking for 5 quarts too, or?? I have a oil can book with some gargoyle quarts and 5 quarts. I'll send yeah a list of the ones they have in it.

Thanks
Noah

Awesome cans Dan!!
Especially those top two! And the top right is really really cool!!! Do you know it's date? Certainly looks to be earlier than the rest.
