    1. What I say bout the Jungle Green, but thats cool I knew you were gonna post them. You just could not resist.
    2. WTF would someones grandfather be doing with 6 cans of Jungle Green. I mean come one now, I'm not calling anyone a liar, just shit is a little hard to believe. I mean 1 I might believe, but 6? And all the other colors were basic? What would the average person use 6 cans of Jungle Green for? I ont mean to go on a rant (Thanks D.Miller) but come on now...
    3. More posts, lets see some pictures!!!

    I have a can of that Krylon yellow stencil ink, where the Krylon headquarters is listed as Norristown, PA. It contains lead. The can is a tank, very heavy, obviously kept all its pressure.

    Yeah punds cans are a beautiful thing, too bad paint companies felt it was more important to have pressure over paint...or did they have some other reason for cutting the amount...cheap bastards.

    This is the can I was asking about. I think it is Yellow 712 , but I have heard of mandarin yellow, neither I have never seen before this, so any help would be nice.
    I love sapolin, great can, wish it was in better condition. Sapolin was a great brand back in the day, I am not sure if they still make sprays anymore. The other is a nice bite off of Krylon, the color check this "Little Boy Blue" It was made by NYBCO (New York Bronze Company)

    Later, and where is your flics?

    osh?..as in orchard supply hardware?it might be worth something to someone who doesn't live on the west coast(osh only has stores in the west,its not a nationwide chain,even tho its owned by sears)other than that,they still have rose available in the stores,(all their cans are paper wrapped)it has a different label than the ones they have now tho.i dont know anyone who collects them,so its not likely that its worth anything...good luck anyways...

    Whospank is right. that paint is from the west coast and some people on the east coast love it and really want it. The only thing is I hate to tell ya that the ones the sell in the stores now are paper labels and all say 1984 on them so it probabally isn't that old. As far as that color goes I don't know if they still make it or not, I'd have to go check, I was there a couple weeks ago and I think I remember seeing that color but not 100% sure.
    As always if you have old paint and want to trade email me at [email protected]

    yeah a date on a can is only the copyright date. If there is a newer date then you can expect it to be as old as the next date that appears. Does that make sense, some companys like rusto change their cans often, so usually the date reflects the age, but try tellin that to the old guy at the hardware store. A good example is AA. Dates on the old cans say 1991, but they were available like that till like 96-97. So you figure it out.

    word up on the dating.
    it's a confusing shit, this dating thing. it seems to go back and forth between date of copyright (design/formula) and date of manufacture. and i havent been able to put together an easy way to figure it out since it's never consistent.
    for instance, Rusto cans can be found for every year between 1976 and 1984- some years nothing changed on those cans. Hard Hats debuted in the late 70s and the SAME EXACT can has new dates on it all the way to 1988. Rusto's dating then gets fuzzy for a few years and revises a few times before the 90s.

    Krylon seems to maintain the same date (1991) on every can since SW bought the company, but with small revision dates. where it's easier to figure out dates on really old cans where they might actually print the manu. date on it, it's better to use color charts to approximate can dates.

    the big headache that i have coming on is BARCODES. not barcode caps, but the strange barcoding that krylon did in the late 70's/80's.
    by the way, does anyone else have an 83 Rusto can with a SCREENED barcode (not a sticker) on the cap?

    My understanding of copyright dates is this: The can's actual age will be anywhere from AS OLD AS the year marked, to AS NEW AS the year they next changed the package design. Except in the 78-80 range for Rusto there are all three years marked on cans with identical designs, so I could be mistaken.
    As an example, a 1983 Rusto might have come out in 83,84,85, or early 86, and then in 86 they changed the design again so it has to be one of those years, no earlier than 83 and no later than 86.
    I have actually had plenty of luck with hardware store owners believing the copyright date is also the date of manufacture, so I get good discounts, and pay the least for the oldest cans.

    Exactaly, but then some store owners are like "it sprays...then its good" and they have gone af far as spraying it in front of me...and they know damn well they been sitting on those cans for over 10 years, and that they are not gonna sell them. But anyway, cracked post some cans, lets see whats on your shelf...
