I have seen pictures of this graphic on oil cans, but never on this small (approx. 8" long) brush. Possibly a give-away to customers to brush off after a ride in the open car?

Anyone have an opinion on value? Overall, it's in nice condition.

Thx, Dave

Would like to hear from "can" guys as to current market values for the Trop Artic cans (or other items).

Here are a few auction prices we got from over the last few year (They include buyers premium) for a few variations of cans/cups.

I have one a Trop Artic brush just like yours. I believe I paid around $50. Depending on condition, they go for about $50-100.

Just a little additional info: I believe it's a shoe polishing brush. I've seen (and own) similar ones with Buick dealer imprints and graphic from the 1920's. John
