Default unknown boiler

Picked this boiler up at an auction today. I'm just getting started with steam models I have have some gas engine models, but I don't know much about steam or how it goes together. This boiler overall is 10.5 inches long by about 6.5 inches high, 10.5 inches high to the top of the stack. The boiler itself is about 3.5" in diameter and 9 inches long. It looks like this might have gone into something larger like a model building or something and the top of the boiler has some kind of filler similar to concrete. It does not seem to be a homemade model It seems like it might have a couple of safety valves one on the top and one on the bottom of the tube under the sight glass. It has no gauge or fitting to connect to an engine, I believe the threaded hole on the top would be for the connection to the engine, could you also tee a gauge off of that?
