Default Four (?) gallon fuel can:

I need some guidance on the origins and value of what I believe is a four gallon capacity, reusable fuel can. It was acquired in Canada. The metal gauge is quite light. There is a removable vent cap, retained by a copper chain which remains in the can when the cap is in the fixed position.

The can appears to be NOS. No manufacturers markings, dates, or country of origin found. Note: a single nail hole has been punched through the top.

sale pending

We have 3 of those cans here at the RCA Museum. Can't say, other than yours, that I have ever seen others. There is no marking on the can as to date or what they were to contain.

The nail hole should not be a big deal. Tin the metal, then drip some lead onto the tinned metal and it should seal right up.
