I purchased this jug at a thrift store, it was covered in green paint and could not see any markings at the time of purchase.

I brought it home and washed off the paint with extremely hot water and a sponge. I was extremely delighted to find out it was a 

red wing! However I have only previously seen a No. 5 with this printing. Is the No.3 rare? Please review my pictures and advise if possible in addition to the possible value. I believe I paid $14.00 for it.

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.



Amy, Your Waconda Adverting jug is worth $500-$550 in excellent condition.
