Bob Richards sent a PM and suggested that this can may have been used to collect sap,thus the top missing and the hole on the back.I think he is correct as the bottom of the can has a lot of residue in it,almost looks like rust.

Being that I make maple syrup I really don't think so. Don't think you can get it clean enough to get rid of the oil taste/smell. I would never use a oil can for collecting sap. They may have been used by some broke desperate sapsucker but not a dude that valued his product. There are many more better tin cans available like veg's,plastic jugs etc. I use 4 gallon plastic food grade bags that cost two bits each.

VERY common to find 5 quart cans used as sap pails in Wisconsin. (Not one quarts....too small) Over the years I've picked up many dozens of cans because they were saved from maple syrup operations. I've been to several estate auctions that had a big pile of sap collecting oil cans. Hasn't happened for a number of years now.

Found more 5 quart cans used as sap collectors than intact ones over the years.
