    Little help please ID'ing a find??

    I know this isn't anything valuable or a nice civil war relic but I found this on a ladies property who gave me permission to hunt her land and for some reason she is obsessed with finding out what this might be! If anyone has any ideas or guesses please pass them along? I would love to find out what this is for this woman! The property had a gas station on it until the 1940's and they lived in a home behind the gas station if that might help, possibly automotive? Thanks

    It looks similar to an early radiator temperature gauge cap from a vintage automobile. This link shows different caps.

    Thanks Gambrinus, makes sense being that it was an old filling station. I wonder how I could narrow down a time frame or brand of vehicle? Any ideas?

    You might find a dealer who sells those type of parts and try to match the bottom part where it would attach to the radiator. That is what I did when I chose the pic I provided, as you can tell I did not find an exact match but it is close and it is possible that my pic is for a different year of Buick since it is a close match.
