It’s an ACF Built car.
I haven’t taken the time to examine the car verses known cars but if you have Ed Kaminski book on ACF tank cars,
You should be able to determine when it was built. My guess based on the trucks under the car is it was built earlier than 1928 but after 1912 I would say 1923.

Yes. 1-34 is the shop date but over on the right it looks like AC&F (or something xC&F)
and the number 1928 is clearly visible. I think the tank may have been built in 1928.

That “BUILT 1912” stencil seems wrong for the tank, but the frame does have the early “C” channel facing inward construction. My guess is that the tank was replaced, perhaps even 1-34, given its construction.

Cool photo ! The frame has a 1912 stencil but the tank appears to have a 1928 stencil.
I never knew a private reporting mark could be 5 letters. :-\
