The 1920's Coca-Cola red barrels are pretty sweet. I added this 5 gallon size to go with my 10 gal a couple weeks back from an eBay bid auction for a little less than Martin's Guide value for an excellent example. Same seller that TGBWC snagged his fantastic Joan Crawford sign BIN (still smarting that he beat me to it).
Happy to add this old syrup container to my collection. Took me a long time to find one at a decent bid point. I think these have come down in sale price over the last year, so finally timing was right.
I have it on display over by the Vendo. Tilted slightly forward to good effect. I'll have a piece of plexiglass cut to fit over the label end for protection. In the meantime, I bought a pack of oversize plastic photo book picture holder inserts and cut one to size as temporary coverage.
