BETWEEN 1994 AND 1996 TEXACO BEGAN A NEW COLLECTORS SERIES. INITIALLY IT WAS JUST CALLED THE COLLECTORS SERIES AND IT WAS MARKETED THROUGH THEIR SERVICE STATIONS. THESE TANKERS DID NOT HAVE COIN BANKS.
THEN IN 1996 THE SERIES BECAME THE CREDIT CARD EDITION COLLECTORS SERIES. AT VARIOUS TIMES DURING THE YEAR, A HOLDER OF A TEXACO GASOLINE CREDIT CARD WOULD GET OFFERS FOR TEXACO PROMOTIONS WHEN THEY RECEIVED THEIR MONTHLY BILL. STARTING IN 1996 THEY BEGAN OFFERING A TEXACO TANKER COIN BANK ONCE A YEAR.
THEN IN 1997 ANOTHER TANKER SERIES EMERGED CALLED THE LUBE OIL LEGENDS SERIES. IT RAN AT LEAST THROUGH 2000.
I AM OFFERING THE FOLLOWING COLLECTIBLE PIECES AS (1) LOT:
