I obtained this visible gas pump on 3-23-11. I am new at this picking thing but I believe it may be a FRY model 117. The front says Visible Liquid Measure Co. - Rochester, PA. From what I have read on the internet these 10 gallon units where manufactured around 1925. I do know that it has been in a cow pasture since 1957 but am not sure of its history prior to that. I am pretty certain that the blue glass is original. My plan is to restore it but honestly I am not sure how to safely remove the glass without damaging it. Maybe I will get some good tips from the pros out there.
