    Didnt see much at an estate sale Sat. but did find these 3 household oil cans/bottle for total of $6. The owner was a toy train collector and had a lot of train stuff. I'm sure he used these oil cans on the trains. I'm not sure of the age of these oil cans but they are pre-zip code. Any info is welcome. enjoy

      I am a collector of 3-in-1 oil & other oilers I would put the 3-in-1 around 1940-45 with that clear style top & the good housekeeping seal on the side. Nyoil around 1960 and boye bottle early-mid 1930s
