Coffee Barrel Lid
Made by Dwinell-Wright Co.
Coffee beans, bought in large quantities, and ground fresh at the chuckwagon, fueled the trail drives of the open range era. Arbuckles coffee included candy sticks in the bean sacks. Cooks used these as incentives to get cowboys to grind the beans for them.
