    Found this metal Gibraltar oil can by Hood Refining Company near where I live (about one mile from Manor, Pa. which is listed as where the Hood Refining Co. was located). Don't have any idea how old it is or what it's worth . . . but would be interested in knowing. I'll keep it since it is from an old place which I didn't even know existed near my house but is no longer there. The metal Powerlube can is another old one I found. Does anyone know the age or what it is worth ? The Wynn's can is also metal. Does anyone know the age ?

      around $30. I've seen a few of them. It says "be square" and has squares and lines on it right? Is the big b inside a square?
