    Found this on EBay and knew right away that this was a old can because of cone top but had no idea it was 140 years old!! The whole script and picture is embossed too!! I asked the seller where this was found and her reply was that she has a friend who does remodeling jobs on old farms out in California and he from time to time brings her interesting things from his clean outs for her to put on EBay:) I asked her to please get specifics of where and how he found it so I could tell everyone who asks where it came from. This is the coolest can I have ever seen!!

      Awesome Old Oil Can! Wow...that's an Oldie!! Love It :)
    2. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 3 years ago
      Incredible that this is kicking around on the lft. coast when Standard Oil was just founded on the right coast in 1870. Surely theses weren't made by Standard in the 1st couple of yrs.! This is probably one of the 1st ! That has to be a serious collector's item. I'll give you a dollar, 2 , 98 for it & pay half the shipping.

      Great offer from BB2 there Trey..... probably took about a nanosecond of thought to give him an answer.
      It sure is a special tin.
    4. jscott0363 jscott0363, 3 years ago
      Trey,
      That is a really great can!! Nice find!
    5. Rattletrap Rattletrap, 3 years ago
      Fantastic find!!!! I'd give u the same as Blunderbus2 and even pay the shipping.
      This is an item that problem ought to go to a big auction house as it is so rare and desireabble that it could support your entire hobby for years! Great hunting!!!! Find of a lifetime!!!

      That was for lamp oil. Not motor oil. Very cool. I wonder if they were partnered with Aladdin Lamps?
