Early 1900's Acme Oil Filter? Very Large Canister - Tue Oct 24 2017 08:54 PM

Hi. I came across this contraption a few days ago and was hoping to find out any info as far as collectibility, possible rarity, maybe a guess at some sort of value if someone knew. I couldn't find anything other than some old ads from the early 1900's. it's complete minus the two spouts that go in the threaded holes. I believe it's been possibly repainted or touched up at some point but only speculating. It's pretty large. Maybe 2-1/2 feet tall or something like that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have seen a couple of these at farm and tractor shows. McCormick made one that looks different from the one pictured. One like the one pictured sold at auction previously for 150.00
