Sterling Motor Oil Can: Extremely rare, early hand soldered motor oil can from Sterling Refining Co. (Emlenton, Pa.) featuring great images of race car, speedboat and airplane (same images both sides). Has strong colors and displays fairly well on shelf, although not for the perfectionist, as there are dark spots of oxidized weathering on front and back sides. Tough to grade, but somewhat below a 7 seems appropriate (some needed restoration in a few areas could improve appearance to a nice solid C. 8/+).
