Original Item: This is the first oilcan issued with the Vickers Medium Machine Gun. The can is constructed of plated steel with a brass screw cap. Ours are the early version with a brush attached to the cap. The capacity is 0.5 pint. The official name is CAN, OIL, MG, MK I, and it was introduced in February of 1915. See Dolf Goldsmith, The Grand Old Lady Of No Mans Land (Collector Grade Publications, 1994), page 506. These very early WW I oil cans are quite rare.
Measures Approximately 4″ x 3″ x 1 1/2″.
