Does anyone know what this would of had in it originally??

I am from the west coast so I assume this has to do with heating oil for your homes or businesses back east? :NC

I gave a couple of bucks at a flea market to put my lantern parts in it. 8) 8)

Thanks for the help in advance.

I looked on EBay and found this: http://www.ebay.com/bhp/anthes?_trksid=p2045573.m2388

Also Googled and found this: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&site ... Ek3rTjsoBE

It looks like it was a container for roadside markers.

I like cool boxes.

Good find.

Cheers,

Gus
