Hi there, I’m looking for some information on my 3 gallon shoulder jug. I don’t see many with a black number 3 or no Red Wing oval, can you please explain. Also, I’d like to know roughly the date it was made & a price for if I ever sold it.
Richard, your Red Wing 3 gallon advertising jug was made for a Canadian Company (most likely a liquor company). The Imperial stamp means that the 3 gal jug is really 3 liters (4.2 gallons). Also, the use of black ink verses blue would be up to the company requesting the color of ink on their order. Your advertising shoulder jug was produced between 1918 & 1930 and has a value between $700 & $800. Al Kohlman
