PLEASE WAIT TO PAY UNTIL ALL THE AUCTIONS ARE OVER AND I WILL SEND YOU A COMBINED INVOICE. This empty 2 1/2 gallon all metal can dates from the 1960s era and is an old original. Not 100% mint (nothing is to me) but looks cool when displayed as you can see. Many imperfections but still a great old can.It's an old one and it's GUARANTEED authentic. I SELL OLD A DVERTISING WHICH MOST ITEMS HAVE BEEN USED AND ARE IN USED CONDITION. I HAVE BEEN IN THE ANTIQUE ADVERTISING BUSINESS FOR OVER 30 YEARS AND I HAVE NEVER SEEN AN ABSOLUTE MINT ITEM THAT HAS BEEN USED BUT I HAVE SEEN A LOT OF STUFF THAT HAS BEEN USED VERY LITTLE THAT IS IN GREAT SHAPE AND WELL TAKEN CARE OF.
