Default Neat find

While working in one of my outbuildings I found this on a shelf. My question for the experts, is this raw or boiled? Yes I plan to use it.

I want to agree....the "pure" wording makes me think raw.
Could this can be before 1970, as Valspar merged with Minnesota Linseed Oil in 1970...

I couldn't see a date anywhere. But on the back of the can there was no indication I could find about Valspar. It is full never open as far as I can tell.

It will probably take me a few years to empty it, its full. My last quart of BLO lasted 10 years.

well looking at that ebay page, you can sure try to sell anything.and everything appears to have a collector for it. makes garand/carbine/1911 collectors look pretty sane
