Default I bought a Keg for $10

I bought a keg from someone on Craigslist yesterday for $10. I think it came over on the Mayflower... would someone take a look at it and tell me all you can about it. Well, except "Dude, it's freakin' ugly!" Any keg painted purple and upholstered is automatically ugly.

As a matter of fact, I did exactly that while I ate my lunch today.

I have several of these kegs in my basement. They came from my Great Grandfather who used them to ferment wine and cider in. His are circa 1970 or prior genesee cream ale kegs. One thing to note is that mine are not stainless steel but actually aluminum. Most kegs were aluminum back in the day apparently

It looks like something from a set of a campy alien movie– like a pod that's going to hatch some crazy gremlins.

looks like a hoff-stevens keg. Is the side bung welded up? can't tell from the pic. I have one that i cut the top off and use as my HLT. Had to do a little extra welding to seal up the extra holes but it works good now.
