Customer Question
What are the old...

What are the old Buhl milk jugs worth? no lid and minimal rust as it was painted black and kept on a porch.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

My mother had it for most of my life (63 years) and I believe my dad found it at a flea market.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

No, they painted it black and put some proud American eagle decals on it as my mother's house was a country decor.
