Hi all! I saw this Sunoco Oil Bottle on E-bay and was unsure if it was real or a repro. There are so many repro oil bottles out there now that I question everyone I look at. I bought this one as I have not seen a repro bottle with the curvy lines around the bottom of the bottle, Sunoco is the only ones I've seen like that. I'm still not 100% on this one though so if any of you out there have any info please share, Thanks!

    Any other markings on it?
  3. EJW-54 EJW-54, 1 year ago
    Good morning gargoylecollector, it looks to have the same markings as my old bottles but its the first one I've owned with the Decal.

    I have a Sunoco bottle that my wife bought me over 20 years ago. That was before the repos came out. It has the curvy Lines like yours. Made by the H.M. Co. Like yours.
    It has a different label with a trade mark . REG.U.S.PAT. OFF.
    I think it’s the real deal IMO

    One deference is the square mark seal is lower on my bottle but that’s it. Inside the square it reads 0-6-B....looks like yours just can’t read it that well.

    Hi Gulf99! Thanks, I still have not seen any repro's with the curvy lines so thats good. I have seen repro Sunoco Bottles but they screem repro with a bad label and no curvy lines.
