I've accumulated quite a few over the years and it seems some of them are worth a bit now. This one stack I've got.

Brings back memories of visiting my grandparent's farm almost a lifetime ago, a city kid running free with no worries! My Grandpa never had a shop, just an old shed with his tools.

Hi Rusty,

What is that container in the lower middle? Is that dirt or coffee grounds or ashes? That container looks like a
container my parents had which was called a coal pail for carrying briquettes or ashes.

An interesting collection. Have you accumulated all or did you inherit a smaller collection and add to it?

Ron

Ron, I thnk what you are seeing there is actually the lower clutch housing off the 53 Mercury parts car. I should have moved it for the photo. The tins were never intended as a collection but nobody ever threw much away here. Tobacco tins stored all manner of odds and ends. Bigger anti freeze or oil tins held bolts and nuts, etc. I've got some of the big five gallon BA and Esso oil pails. Shell, Co-op, probably plenty of others that escape me now. Guess I need to organize them all in one spot and start a tin can museum.

Is that a summer kitchen, brooder house, cream separator shack, or?

I could post the same pic darn near, almost to the same rafters and similar content.

Neat.

Paul

Speaking of old tins I've accumulated these over the years, probably 25+ years but as Rusty says we never threw much away on the farm so here are some results.

I'm not sure how old this can is, but I'm guessing maybe from the 1960's.

I never collected cans, but have one Billy Beer can. I have a few old bottles I dug up years ago. One bottle says: The Great Swamp Root kidney, and
bladder cure. Stan

I downsized, sold a bunch like that.
Automotive cans were popular, probably
still are.

I read that Dr. Kilmer had to shut down his swamp root operation in 1906. Quite a few of his bottles are still dug up in Illinois.
