I recently purchased this gas can and have not been able to find anything on the web about it I was hoping someone would be able to help identify the age and value for me . The only markings on it are shown in the the photo there are no marking on the bottom or top just the side. Thanks in advance, Chris




Pictures will not post on the top of the side it says US and on the bottom it says MC both of which are stamped in the metal

Post WW2. Possibly civilian since it has no ICC (Interstate Commerce Commission) markings on it.

From another thread, "USMC" could be the United States Metal Corporation, a maker of these things. I don't think the Marine Corps would split their "USMC" like that.
