Found this 2 gallon oil can today, it was really dirty and cleaned up a little but is still pretty rough. Anyone know much about this can? Could not find any of them on eBay. Like so many oil cans it only has one decent side, the other is really rough. That is fine for display though! Any info or value or dating is appreciated
