Looks like someone removed the tank from a gas water heater and is now trying to sell if for about the same money as a new water heater would cost.

Water heater tanks are not stainless. This looks much thicker too. You need to look at what it can be, not what it was.
Really!

Beside I said it looks like a water heater tank not that it was a water heater tank.

It also said "Best Offer- Make Offer". May still be an even better deal.

Anyone willing to get the top cut off and clean with PBW or whatever would have a very heavy duty tun for next to nothing. Anyone brewing large batches is expecting a fair bit of work even in just the brew aspect. It could have been from any industrial use, but would able to be reused with proper cleaning technique; it's friggin' heavy stainless.

Even if there was a coil in it, it would add to the value, and would be salvage in hand when the lid was removed.

I've always considered semantics to be little more than wiggle room.
