US Military Qt. Oil Can

I picked this full “OE-10 HD Oil Engine”, oil can up today, I think it may be late WW II vintage, what do you think? I would appreciate any thoughts and comments.

Thanks for looking,

The WWII US Military grease and oil cans had a change over in 1943 from silver/ chrome with black lettering to the OD green paint theme. I'm thinking the same with yours is late war to pre war Korea .


These cans can be very reasonable to buy. I've also been collecting these cans as well and some are rare and over looked in military collecting and also under priced.
