MS001 Red Indian Grease Pail

Minimum Bid: $1000

Range:$1500-2000

Sold: $1000

You may have noticed Red Indian stuff is red hot. We noticed. This Red Indian grease pail is something special. Marked for Texaco Canada Limited, the last incarnation of the Red Indian brand. Marked on the base: MADE IN CANADA. 25 pounds of pure grease. This new old stock can comes with a letter of attestation from Douglas Tozer, retired assistant secretary of Texaco Canada. In his letter, Mr. Tozen attests to the fact that this No5 Vulcan grease can was a special order tin for the mining and oil industry exclusively. This particular tin was never used, uncrimped lid. Couple of minor dents on one side. A tiny bit of paint loss on the lid. Unused condition is all we can say. A unique Red Indian product in near mint condition.
