Hi, Gang. I happen to be born and raised in Dubuque, Iowa. I've always enjoyed the Iowa Oil stuff, and remember their local bulk plant from when I was a kid. I'd appreciate hearing some thoughts on the value of this Iowa oil rocker can.

Overall, the can is in pretty decent condition. There are a couple of shallow dents in the faces of the can, and a few on black body. Nothing extreme, however. I'm showing both sides of the can in my photos. Thanks in advance, for any input on the value. John

That's the best condition version of that rocker I've seen...and I think I've seen almost every one known.

I'd say $2,000+ to the right person.

I too grew up in Dubuque and have quite a bit of Iowa Oil stuff.

Hi, Nathan. Thanks for giving us the benefit of your value thoughts on the rocker can. AND, I appreciate you sharing some of the IOWA Oil Company cans in your collection. All are very nice....and seldom seen. Yes, good things do come from Dubuque, Iowa (in addition to you and me!). John
