Here is an item I thought some of you may enjoy. It seems to be an old oil can. It is pretty darn big. About 30 inches tall and 4 1/2 inches in diameter. The bottom says C & O R Y. Is it for a certain railroad? A magnet sticks to it and it is all some sort of metal with a cork capping the opening on top.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. If not no big deal. Take care and have an awesome one my friends! : )

    I found info on the internet saying it's from the Chesapaeke & Ohio Railroad and they are selling between $35 and 50 dollars. Here's one of the websites I found:

    Thank you so much for the link peteeone and information. It is a great start. This one seems to be a bit different though having the cork top. Possibly older then the one in your link? Not sure, but could be.
