    This truly is an amazing can. Made by The R.M. Hollingshead Co in Camden NJ. Castor Axle oil for carriages and buggies. Upon my research this dates between 1895-1910 and is in really really good shape for the age of it. It still had some of the oil in it but I think I'm going to empty it. Also, RM Hollingshead is said to have come up with the idea of the drive-in movie theatre. The factory in Camden which made this oil and other products burned down in the early 40s.
