Dad's got what looks like a 10 gal glass carboy. I have no idea how old it is, but it is the blueish/greenish glass. It has a few inches of pennies in it right now!

All of my carboys are old ones I have picked up at flea markets. Got my 1965 6.5 gallon for free and only paid 10 for a 1919 one. It's green/bluish glass and is larger than 5 gallon but smaller than 6. I Also have a 1928 that came with a nice metal stand that it sits in that can rotate to pour. That one was only 15

Is it thick or thin? I had a pretty old one and it was surprisingly thin. Mine was probably 40 years old... I ended up breaking it
