Bet it's still good. I use the little grease pots with the yellow lids for my M1.

I don't get to a ton of shows but I don't recall having seen a can like this before. Could be wrong. Are they common and what are they worth with this amount of contents?

Common, normally priced around $15 can, can get it for around $25+- shipped, but you can always pay more.

This 1962 grease still works. I've used it since late 60s. I also use the little plastic ones with yellow lids

I will add some Rifle Bore Cleaner. This stuff is for corrosive ammo ( primers). It is supposed to be water based and neutralizes the corrosive salts in the old primers which made the US pre-1954 ammo corrosive. image.jpeg
