I have a grand total of three handy oilers in my collection. I was never really that taken with them and I got these in a group of cans a long time ago. They may be the most common out there or the rarest, I have no idea. Since we were on the subject I thought I'd get educated and let someone critique them.

Being that Popeye has been around since 1929, it doesn't surprise me.
What did surprise me is Popeye being that Old! That's Older than Bob, Jack & Maybe Butch!

Some of my better oilers: oval Shells, very early North Star 'Oil-Wel', Buffalo and Rega sewing machine oilers. I am still looking for a Quaker State 'Oil-Wel' that matches my North Star. Cheers, Don

Don your displays are always in amazingly great shape. REGA disappeared around 1917 correct? Making those cans near to 100 years old. The Scotch Gall Cure can(s) is an interesting story in the definition of "Rare". I had one collector tell me his Scotch Gall Cure was the only one he's every seen and doubts there anymore out there. Well in the space of 3 weeks I saw 3 more-2 were yours of course. Its a neat can, I believe the other side says "for whatever ails beast and man". How old and rare is the Buffalo sewing Machine Oiler?

Fred, I believe British American (B.A.) bought Rega in 1920. So some of the cans are 100 years old. What I like about some of them is that they say on the side 'Not a Member of the Trust' which refers to the Standard Oil trust which was broken up in 1911. Funny that the Rockefellers were even hated up here. However, since they owned Imperial Oil maybe that was a little company getting a jab at the big oil monopoly. The Buffalo would be pre 1930 since they changed their name about then to Prairie Cities from Prairie City. Let me know if you want try some of Gall Cure, lol. Cheers, Don.

I mainly look for US oilers, but if foreign ones turn up I'll add them to the collection.
