Actually McCoy produced several different styles, and color variations of 
"Engine" cookie jars.  The standard was black with gold trim. Yellow with 
black and red trim was a second color produced. There are a variety of 
colors, the result according to one story that is told, of ingenuity in 
decorating. The story; "These were seconds that employees could have and 
decorate at their pleasure during their breaks."

For a closer look at the different styles/color schemes take a look at:
