Gas Junkie] Yikes, it's at 139.00 as of now. It will be interesting to see if he shuts it down. His description is vague at best.

sellers response: seager184

Gas Junkie- its now at 416. don't think he has any plans on

I presume "gap", your talking about the soldered seam-
when the art work of the can doesn't line up from one side of the soldered seam too the other, wrap was applied crooked-
a dead giveaway- this isn't always the case & includes crimped seam cans also- most wraps are applied perfect, you better know what your looking for- take finger nail & scrape around seam area on any can of question .. ... cool

Thanks Randy..
So just to be clear. This Essex can is deemed a fake due to the fact that the art work doesn't line up?
Not that it has a soldered seam (gap) and the art work doesn't touch like a crimped can.
Right?

there are 3 or 4 reasons why that essex can isn't real
they made the last essex in '33 first year of the qt cans
& was owned by hudson, no mention of hudson motor co. on can
why would they put a 20's car on the can,
top & bottom of that can aren't right
oil or grease added too top & bottom rim of can
too make it look authentic- crimped seam cans came along later - don't know if seller is sleeping well but he's eating good .. ... cool

Can't believe what someone paid for that can. Highway robbery with the Essex's as a get away car for $836.98!
