Default 16 Gal? Pot

A friend recently gave me a large bail handle pot. It is pretty rough inside and out. Heavy rust and lots of pitting. It does hold water however. I wire wheeled the bottom because I could see a number that turned out to be 16 insized at the 6 o'clock area. there is a gated mark in the middle. I found ?ARIETTA. And ????? In an arc at 12 o'clock with PA beneath it. I have no means to remove all the rust other than wire wheeling which is not the best method I'm sure. I'm computer challenged and posting pictures is beyond me. My question simply is , is it collectable enough to get someone to post pictures and try to sell it . My only interest in cast iron is cooking in and collecting older skillets.

Made in Marietta, PA. Without pics it would be hard to give any idea on collectability.

Thanks for the link, it's almost the exact marking on my pot.My pot is badly eroded and almost illegible,but that's the one. I will try to get someone to help post a picture here.
