OLD 3-PIECE RIVETED MILK CAN, BOTTOM IS RIVETED, SIDE IS RIVETED, TOP IS SLIP FIT, ALL SEAMS ARE SOLDERED. MILK CAN IS IN PRETTY GOOD CONDITION, IT IS NOT RUSTED THROUGH ANY W NOT MANY OF THESE OLD MILK CANS ARE LEFT TIME AND RUST HAVE TAKEN T TOLL ON THEM. THIS MILK CAN LOOKS TO HAVE BEEN RESTORED AT ONE TIME, OUTSIDE HAS CLEAR COATING OF SOME KIND CAN HAS A SATIN SHEEN TO IT, INSIDE HAS A COARSE FEEL TO IT ALMOST LOOKS LIKE IT HAS BEEN GALVANIZED IF THAT IS POSSIBLE, I DOUBT IT CAME FROM THE FACTORY THAT WAY.

SIDES OF CAN HAVE A FEW SMALL DIMPLES BUT NO MAJOR DENTS, ONE HANDLE HAS A PRETTY GOOD DENT SEE PIC. THE OTHER HANDLE HAS A SMALLER DENT, NEITHER HANDLE IS LOOSE THEY ARE AS TIGHT AS WHEN IT WAS MADE, MILK CAN HAS SEWARD CREAMERY CO. EMBOSSED ON IT AND IS PROBABLY FROM NEBRASKA AS SEWARD IS ONLY 12 MILES FROM ME, ALSO ON NECK OF CAN T IS A STAMP THAT SAYS SOLAR-STURGES LIQUID 40 QUARTS IN A CIRCLE AND INSIDE THE CIRCLE IS A DIAMOND SHAPE WITH SERIAL 1A MINN. CAN MEASURES 13 1/4" ACROSS BOTTOM AND STANDS 24 1/4" TALL. LID FITS GOOD AND STILL HAS THE ORIGINAL RIVETED LID KEEPER.

IF YOU COLLECT OLD MILK CANS I DOUBT IF YOU HAVE THIS ONE, SEWARD WAS A SMALL TOWN CREAMERY AND PROBABLY DIDN'T HAVE MANY CANS MADE AND OF THOSE HOW MANY WOULD BE LEFT TODAY. THIS IS HEAVY ABOUT 29 POUNDS BOXED. NO RESERVE GOOD LUCK BIDDING
