It's amazing how many brands of coffee were sold in the pas with bright labels covering a multitude of subjects ranging from animals (such as Red Wolf brand) to Indians (such as Mohican brand).
The value of such containers depends on their uniqueness, condition, completeness (being intact with covers, handles, if any, and unmarred labels), subject matter pictured on the label and rarity, as well as size and shape.
"Food and Drink Containers and Their Prices," by Al Bergevin, pictures, describes and prices numerous coffee containers. It's available for $19.45 postpaid from Wallace-Homestead Book Co., Chilton Way, Radnor, Pa. 19089-0230; phone (800) 695-1214.
