    Found in a local dimly lit cluttered junk store that I frequently visit. The lighting is bad and the eyes even worse so walked by it probably more than a few times. One day picked it up squinted and saw COLEMAN on the top and then it had to come home with me. Very solid heavy gauge well made can. Embossed on top with COLEMAN FILLING CAN TORONTO. Fuel filling can also has a patent date of 1924 on the fill screw lid. Dealer list picture shows the cans available back in the day.

    Great, another version to find. Paint color doesn’t appear to have changed. Here’s my fuel can.
