I'm going to start transitioning from ig to here.  So tired of that format, but for those that want to see more of my collection find me @theoldhabits    

Not a collector by any means, but I picked this up a little while back from an estate sale. Any idea where I could get more info about it? The back shows an address in Springfield, MA.    

I took this pick July 2001 and a little over a month later I posted it on here.   The first pic, hard to think that was 18years ago...

Anyone try using muriatic acid or any of the other acids for removing rust.


I would be concerned that it would also remove the litho on the cans. If you just use a wire brush, it leaves the can with a smooth, black metal finish, like it's been tarnished.


CLR works great, but you basically have to soak the object in it for several hours. The pitting from the rust is never going to go away, which would look pretty ugly in my opinion.

yeah it is real thick, i love the color too. i remember back about 8 years or so ago before i was into collecting cans i got 7or 8 of them from 83 as well as about the same amount of harbor blues from a local harware store that went under back then. thinking back now i kick myself for not buying all of the other cans and the rack and also i kick myself for using them all. but yeah its a dope color. lol
