I love the bright green color and of course the apatosaurus. Sinclair registered the apatosaurus trademark in 1932. Later the pentagon border with apatosaurus trademark was registered in 1959. I purchased at an antique mall. A rare find I am excited to add to a modest petrolium collection.

    In 1932 and 1959 "Dino" was a Brontosaurus. Sadly, in 1975 he lost his head and changed his name. :)

    Cool, have a few old cans myself, mainly standard oil. I am looking to off them. Not like Dino though. pappabear135@comcast.net

    I have one I imagine would be older than that because it does not have any color or logo.
