This is an early single use Buffalo Fire Extinguisher, it had a great polish job on it with the original tag and serial number. The instructions are printed on the brass plate on the front and the copper sets it apart from most of the others I've seen. The top was originally red and the remnant remains. It has "Tested to 350 lbs" on the top offset from that are the number "3 and "63". The hose and nozzle are original which is rare among this era extinguisher. Enjoy!

    very good condition, I have been working on cleaning one up that is similar.
    I haven't been able to locate many that say "TO PLAY" on the front. I think that is a very unique feature of this particular item.
    Planning on selling mine when I finish restoration.

    I found two of these with hoses and nozzles. What are they worth?
