Question Aluminum Lunkenheimer No.4 oiler

At the Clio,Michigan show this past week-end I picked up a Aluminum Lunkenheimer #4 oiler. Does anyone know what they were used on and are they scare? Also what are they worth? Thanks for your input.

What you have is a "ALSEN". " The Alsen oil cup is designed for especially for severe railroad or industrial service." says the Lunkenheimer catalog. It was made only in the # 4 size. They show up once in a while and are usually in the $80-100 range.
