These used cornelius kegs are in great shape. They will show some wear and tear, as they are used. They may have some dust on them, as they are stored in our warehouse. Occasionally, there may be a minor ding or sticker. Kegs are tested to ensure they hold pressure before we ship them to you. Note, we are using the word "cornelius" as a generic term to denote a 5 gallon ball lock. There may be Firestone, Champion or Spartanburg brand kegs in the mix, which are all "corny kegs". It is similar to saying kleenex, when you want a tissue.
