Have a few similar pieces...mostly just stuff I remember from being a kid....a couple cardboard and tin quart oil cans, some "Wynnes oil" or some-such and Marvel Mystery oil container like your "Sealfast" one. Not really a collection, just stuff that I have sitting above a bookshelf in the garage for the 'cool factor'.

Yeah, the WYNN'S stuff (IMO) is the coolest. The label design with the multi-colored rainbow thing screams
"70's". Reminds me of "Laugh In" and Album covers of the day.

Found this vintage Hawes Simplex cleaner tin.
I havent seen another one like it.
Maybe early 1950's ? It has a paper label.

Found a rare Johnson Outboard 2 cycle motor oil tin for $2.00
Anyone know the year ? Im thinking early 1970's ? Theres no UPC barcode number. (The first UPC marked item ever scanned at a retail checkout was at the Marsh supermarket in Troy, Ohio on June 26, 1974, and was a 10-pack (50 sticks) of Wrigley's Juicy Fruit chewing gum)
