Table of Contents

There has been a steady growth of interest in collecting oil company and automobile advertising pieces. This big volume, devoted exclusively to oil can containers, features over 750 full color photographs of diverse oil cans from the 1880s to the 1980s. Included are motor oil, aviation and marine oils as well as oils and lubricants for household use. From well known names like Esso, Gulf, Quaker State, and Shell, to regional brands like Kentucky Consumers, Lion Head, and Pittsburgh Penn Oil, over two hundred-fifty brands are clearly identified. A special section identifies the cans used by thirty-two Canadian oil companies. The book includes helpful information for collectors including how to identify, date, and grade the condition of a can, collectors' resources, and a list of oil can manufacturers. This valuable resource, featuring descriptions and estimated values of every item, is a must for the serious gas station collector so you can add to your collection with confidence.
