    I believe that you are about 50 years too late! Everything is plastic now a days with screw on caps.

    They're collector's items now. I don't know why you'd ever want to open one. I dunno, probably work on a can of soup or something.

    I have a couple of those very same cans in my shop with nails stored in them. They have held up well over the years.

    I remember those from back in the day when service stations actually had service. The guy who pumped the gas had one of those chrome plated coin dispensers on his belt to make change.
    Stupid is forever, ignorance can be fixed.

    That was when you could get change when buying gas! I remember my mother would buy the bulk oil sold in glass mason jars with the metal spout and thimble like cap because it was .15 a quart?
