    I found this drum in my grandfather's garage Cen-pe-co lubricate drum with working metal spout on bottom. I am unable to locate value or information on it. Can anyone provide information about this item? can provide additional pictures. Its in good condition.

      Nice drum - Look on the top or bottom of your drum for some raised lettering and numbers. From about 1912 to 1969, the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) required drum manufacturers code number. For example, an ICC – 5 indicates a steel drum that was permitted to contain inflammable liquids or nitrating acids, in your case oil. The ICC also required a 3-number code that will look something like “16-55-30”. In this example, that identifies the drum as 16 gauge steel, 55 gallon capacity and manufactured in 1930. A drum manufacturer name (e.g. Rheem) or initials (e.g. W&B, DMC), or logo was also required. It looks like your drum is smaller than 55 gallons, so the center number my be 15, 20, or 30 for the appropriate gallon capacity of the drum. The end number will represent the year your drum was made. I have no idea about the value of these old drums, but the Central Petroleum Co. lithography looks to be in good condition and that is what the petroliana collectors will be most interested in.
