    Found two of these old metal cans. Wonder if they are beer cans or maybe oil cans? They are H = 4.5 inches. W = 3.5

      I was looking at a few of your posts. You seem to be an archaeologist of sorts. I lived in the country for years and right across the road from me, ( still my property), I would pull bottles and metal “things” out of the side of the hill for years. I suppose there was a dump there maybe a century ago. Then I would take walks in the creek bed and find pieces of plates, cups, bottles, etc. Real old “stuff”. My Ancestor’s founded the canyon, and I always wondered if this bit of plate, or bottle was theirs. Silly thinking? Sure, but there was no garbage company to haul your trash away a century ago, so people just chucked it anywhere! I think it’s really cool what you do, and then to re-use is even better. ( the car part).....

      I collect beer cans. I believe hat what you have is an old cone top beer can. The measurements match yours. Cone tops were introduced in 1935. Cone tops were designed in response to flat top beer cans as a hybrid between beer bottle and flat top can. I have quite a few in my collection - not to be confused with the crowntainer which is similar but without the upper seam.
