Default Oiler Question

I was just wondering if there is anything special about this oiler i have (currently) on my fairbanks, if it is worth anything or if it is just the normal everyday run of the mill type oiler. it is brass with glass.....hay, that rimes, anywho, i was just wondering if there is anything special about it, it doesn't have a name like others do, it just has something stamped ontop of the oiler, it says, W.D. ALLEN MANUFACTURING CO.
all's i know is that it is not the original oiler but it still looks good.

HAPPY 4th! well, almost.

Sky,
Sounds like a regular oiler to Fairbanks Morse used a variety of Brands from Essex, to Michigan oilers. On your particular engine it used a pot metal oiler similar to the tine one used on the hit and miss battery engine, in that picture I sent you a while back it shows the original oiler. They are really hard to find and I haven't seen another one other than mine, I have seen plenty of tin oilers but no pot metal ones.
