    5 lb. "CC" Gear Oil Can I found in a barn pick. It was covered with oil and grease buildup, but came off relatively well without removing graphics. I'm unsure what you call the application of the graphics/label. It has a paper like feel, but is seamless. So is it paint like silkscreen, or litho? Shipping seal/tag has cool Gargoyle logo on one side, and Bayon (a '5' or 'S') N.J. and V.O.Co. embossed on it. I haven't seen (or noticed I should say) on any older cans I've had or looked at so I don't know how rare that is. Wish it was cleaner without the stains, but still very cool to me anyways. It's a toss up, but the Gargoyle just barely edges out the Pegasus and the Sinclair Dinosaur as the coolest petro logos.
