    Great reference book!

    Is a great reference book to research old cans and their values. Tons of photographs, and good information, too.

    Great Selection of cans

    Excellent source of information about a variety of oil cans. I am a new collector and had little idea of the variety and the variations of cans produced. Pictures are large and easy to see as the slight differences you don't notice in other books. I recommend it to all who want to learn about collecting oil cans.
