I just picked up this really nice, bayonet style Ford oil can made by Noera Mfg. Co. Unfortunately, all the copper plating has been rubbed off so it is a natural silver color. Does anyone know of a reputable place to send this to have it re-plated, and what would it cost and is it worth it?

Theoretically, any plating shop can do it. When nickel plating and chrome plating, copper goes on first. Like a primer when painting. The trick is finding a competent shop. I haven't had any plating done for years, so no comment on the cost.

Check out Caswell Plating Supply.
They sell small plating kits that are very easy to use. The employ a plating brush, plating solution and small power supply for about 35 dollars. The plating process is like painting with a small brush, very simple.
I copper plated a few 1943 steel pennies. Thats alot of fun if you want to "mess" with a coin collector.
