Bought 3 cans of this yesterday, still has liquid inside when you shake them, do you think the paint is any good? Amazing what people hang onto thru the years. Cans are dented but appear to be solid.

Kinda cool really...great that it survived...love the OD tins of anything...from sunscreen to oil to lacquer..

nice

 

and is good??? buddy has a pallet of one gallon lead based OD paint, from the 40s...it is still good...thick as mud, at first, but does mix up nicely..
