That is a good looking can. I am pretty sure that style pectin was used between 1941 and 1956. 5 gallon and larger cans usually have a date stamped on the bottom.


I like shoebox pumps [Linked Image]

What's the odds of the cap with the Shell logo still with the barrel? Great piece.

due too size & too the right person probably a couple hundred dollars- I'm sure not many of those were ever saved-
