I found a 5 gallon zerolene no 5, a shell of California 5 gallon, 1/2 gallon faultless, and a richlube that the bottom is rusted out. I saw a similar faultless sold for 450 on here recently, the zerolene and shell cans have me a bit stumped. Every search returns very little on either.

digging thru the archives looking for the shell 5 gal can I ran across this post by

(gaspower) Vern Johnson which I find quite interesting that was posted before I came along

covers Shell Oil pretty thoroughly - (this is a all time topic) posted in '06 .. ... cool

I was looking at that last night. The shell is the 1909 style. I plan to take more pictures of the cans here. I am going back to the estate sale I bought them at in a few minutes
