calling the collective tw wisdom

So I found this thing.in the woods. Not sure what it is. My first thought was old aluminum liquor still. But when I went to pick it up I realized it is stainless. All the other regular steel has rusted and began to rot around this but its still good. Maybe an old water heater because it has two copper pipes comin from the top and a drain spout on the bottom? But there were no other house items. Just this and some rotted steel and a few bricks for the base. Any ideas?

Stainless or gavanized?
Had a WELL tank that looked similar. Could be a very old type.
Well water holding tank--STILL is a possibility!!!!

maybe river water but not well.

how do you tell the difference between galvanized and stainless?

oh and it has something inside it that rattles around like a spray paint can does if that helps at all.

If that's a port to pressurize with air on the back, pressure tank it is.
