I think you're interpreting Philip's post literally. The upside down US markings suggest the buckety was made to be used in Australia which seems to be upside down when you look at a globe. (It's a joke)

Look at that... it´s the same oiler but that does not mean anything.
Since I do not have the SNL I wonder where the information came from that the "real ones" necessarily have to be stamped around the spout thread. Is that mentioned in the SNL? Well, I´m not questioning anybody's knowledge or experience, I´d just like to know.
