This can has never been opened. My great uncle gave this to me. Something he had in an old building. Just wondering if this is worth anything?

    I have one I'm not sure how old it is or if it is valuable but, it looks good on my "oilcan shelf". Being as yours is unopened, a petroliana collector might find it worth something.

    Your can is probably from around the 50's. When i started collecting i started with quaker state as the cans are cheap and plenty out there. Most of my qt can collection was quaker state before i started buying rare/more valuable cans.

    Now a common misunderstanding is that cans that are full are more valuable.
    %90 of collectors want them empty because of the insurance cost and the fact that if you drop a full can it will get more damage. I empty all my oil cans.

    Good advice that makes good sense, Duly noted. Thanks oilman
