Default Lunkenheimer #8 Paragon old-style

While out and about shopping around in a tourist location antique shop alley I spied behind a glass case jam packed with mechanical odd & ends and among all those items were (1) large brass threaded end of engine oiler. .... I could not see the top side so I had the shop owner lady pull them out for me to view. What she had pulled out from the display cabinet was a big #8 Lunkenheimer old-style Paragon oiler. ... My eyes lit up like a roman candle!
The only unfortunate part was the large glass section had a giant blown out section. The knurled flow valve was cobbled with some old modification. Regardless, the price was beyond fair and it ended up on its way home.
I've seen several of the smaller sizes, but this #8 is a whopper!
I have it soaking in some PB Blaster at the moment. Will need to order some new glass for it.
Any of you Lunk collectors have a #8 Paragon old-style with heavy swivel lever?
