Any ideas of value of this Penno tin. It's about 16"-18" diameter. Thanks

I'm sure I'm wrong, but that almost looks like a rocker can side but it would be awfully hard to cut out. Is it possible that could be a side of one before rocker was made? Are there any mounting holes?

Looking for early Pure Oil Company items(Energee,Detonox,Puritan)as well as any Woco Pep items.

Looking for graphic quart cans for my collection.

There are no mounting holes and it is much thinner metal than a rocker can has. I'm not sure how or where this sign would have been mounted. It is embossed a little bit like maybe two were put together in s lollipop stand?

Definitely looks like the side of a rocker can not sure the exact process but if it's thin and flimsy it would stiffen up after being pressed together to make the can?

with that diameter... i would guess it to be a tire insert. definitely not a rocker can. Penno rockers dont have a yellow border like that
