Hey, thanks for posting, nice milks! Rhode Island Milks tend to be uncommon.

Don't know much about RI milks, so can't help you much except that they're from 20's & 30's Rare doesn't always mean value though.

and the other, I know oaklawn and hope are pretty small town/villages espeically back in the 30's which I think these date to. How do you date milks
