Found in a fire station while remodeling 30+ years ago, kept the cans in his garage in a Harvard wood crate. Says he would kick the box of cans around when they were in his way. Filled with sawdust from his profession, he finally decided to get rid of them. Owner was planning on putting them in a yard sale for $5.00 per can.
