It's in the bag...............

Scored this sweet oil tank of our ol' mate Geoff yesterday, originally thought it was NOS but a probing digit into it's inner sanctum revealed that it has been used.

Having said that, it's hard to think it's done much work as there's not a mark on it, and all bracketry is in place and good. Even the paint is arguably Meriden issue as the date stamp is still clear and crisp beneath the finish.

Here's a close up of that date stamp, 1955 vintage.
