    Hello, I recently acquired 4 Charles Russell reprints, and on the back is the Union 76 logo, with a description of the print below it. Can't find anything on E-bay to see what they are worth. Any help or advice where to turn ??

    Union 76 was an oil company that was operated by conoco phillips and merged with Chevron in 2005. Here is a link to some information on the company . Here is another link with some information on oil cans and prices paid by collectors . Hope that helps.

    The can of Premium motor oil by Union is not that old. I worked for Union 1978 till 1989. We had that oil as shown up to that time. Conoco got the lube division, and I think Chevron got their oil production and perhaps refining, not sure, I get a small pension check and it comes from Chevron now--not Union
