I was driveing down the road when I saw a pile of cans some IDIOT had dumped in the ditch. I got some trash bags and went back and picked them all up. After sorting through them (about 40), some went into my cupboard like penetrating oil and spray paint, but also found the first 4 cans in this picture. none of these cans show a zip code except the QuakerMaid, so most are 1950's.

    The red devil is not that old. Late 70's or early 80's. What kind of spray paint cans did you find, they are the desireable to me and other collectors.

    thanks Slyle133, but why no zip code? I thought zip codes started in the 60's.
