5 gallon Red Wing packing jars

Question:

Hello,

I recently came into possession of (2) Red Wing jugs. Can you please share with me any information (age, use, value, etc.) you have on these jugs? I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you

Paul

Answer:

Paul, you have two 5 gallon Red Wing packing jars that were produced between 1936 & 1947.  Value today in perfect condition and without the red wing, $125 to $150 each.  Al Kohlman
