Long time no see my friends! I hope all of you are having an awesome Memorial Day weekend so far and that it continues this way.

I would appreciate any feedback that anyone can give to me on this item. The Star Motor Oil can I am not able to find anything on.. So it seems to be of the rare/scarce variety. Would it be from the 1930's or 1940's? It seems to be. The Star Motor Oil can is from Citrin-Kolb Oil Co. Detroit Michigan as it states on the front bottom.

Thank you so much as well in advance for any information provided. If not no big deal. Regardless make sure to have an even better remainder of the extended weekend. Peace out everyone.... : )

    Hi, my late husband was a collector of motor oil tins, signs, bottles etc. and I am trying to get an idea as to the value of these items. Can find some on ebay but others I cant find anywhere. Can you tell me any sites on the net or books that might help.I have not made up my mind as to if I want to sell or at least insure them. Hope you can help and keep up the good work. Regards Mrs.S

    mrs.s., try, after you join, then you can look up past history of what items have sold for, back as far as 2005 to 2011 auctions. these prices wont allways be realistic as to wealthy bidders can drive price up beyond real value but it does give you an idea of top value. good luck
