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...

Found a box of these too. Anyone know the story on these?

I haven't seen those in years but they are great if you do a reload with a really thin ink.

Something with a good brake fluid works well, nice and drippy.

  • Bump for this old thread, I found these two in separate estate sales, the yellow is a paper label that found at an estate sale in northern california, it was sitting by the garbage cans along with a lot of bucket paint. The sellers gave it to me for free along with a half pint rusto and a Derusto paper label my friend took home. Someone told me the silver is a notch top, and I think that one came from an estate sale, I can't recall anymore.

Anyone seen/dealt with this before or are people keeping empties?  First can not old or collectible, second came from an old Krylon.  I often question if I should keep any of the old ones and this doesn't help.  Lucky these were stored where nothing was damaged and tried one of the newer cans out and it worked for most of the can.

Yeah, had this happen lots of times with 80s era Krylon. Obviously the paint is bad, but the pressure is still mostly intact. Seals (probably a type of rubber) fails and the stuff just comes out like goopy foam. Once had a sunset orange I was going to use for a final outline (mid 90s) start spraying like a volcano because the seal failed from the pressure building due to it sitting out in the Florida sun while I was doing a piece.
