Hello

Any ideas on the age of this oil container?

Thanks

Ouch...that photo (like many of mine) did not turn out good. I'll try and post better details later.

All right, this is what is on the bottle.

 

2 ONCE

OIL-LUBR PRES SPEC

(PL-SP)

SPEC MIL-L-644 A /AMEND. 2

STK NO. 14-0-2833-992

(CONT DA 28-024-ORD-2416(52)

R.M. HOLLINGSHEAD CORP.

CAMDEN N.J.

 

I think I might have answered my own question, maybe if the 52 in the contract number is the contract date?

Thanks

Mark

I believe that is correct as usage of the DA numbers started about then.A WW2 can would be marked with an Ordnance specification and P.O. number like this-

 

Ord.Dept. AXS-702 (Rev.1)

 

 

P.O.No. (28-024) 44-40702.1

 

 

The 44 indicating the fiscal year the P.O. number was issued.
