Default Blast from the past?

Anyone ever come up against or remember this old label from SW - Proclassic Interior alkyd semi-gloss?

Long time customer wants a little touch up done to their fireplace surround after getting some new tile installed. They got this out of their storage area. Has to be the original trim paint from when they had the house built back in the mid eighties (maybe?). Took it in to my local SW to have it looked at and it is fine. Heck, even the can is in good shape - no rust. Price was $28.49. The assistant manager at SW has been with them over twenty years and has never seen this one. Anyway...

That's gotta be from 1950 or so with that SW price sticker on it.

Sort of doubt it would be that old - most likely original to the house, which the current owners had built in the eighties sometime. What got me was that it is still in such good shape - not even a thick skin over it. May add a bit of thinner to improve flow but otherwise it is pretty much good to go.

it will probably yellow pretty quick if you do that. But at least then it will match the almost 40 year old paint that is on that fireplace surround. Good luck.

I still think I've got a gallon of that stuff on a shelf in my garage.

House was built in 94, so older paint for sure. But not exactly an antique white... yet.

With cars it's 25 years to be an antique so, sometime this year.
