Help me identify this copper pot?

I've spent the better part of an hour looking for a forum where I could post a picture of an old copper pot and see if anyone can tell me about it - Sadly I have failed utterly. In desperation I am registering and posting here hoping that this site has enough traffic that someone will either know a more appropriate forum or will know the information I seek.

I know nothing about this pot. My folks were going to sell it for a 50 cents in a yard sale, I rescued it, cleaned it up (as best I can) and now I'm looking for more information. All of my other cookware is stainless steel or cast iron so I have no experience with copper.

The underside of the handle says "NEWARK NJ NO 7" There is a "7" on the top of the handle and on the base between the rivets. The maker's mark for the pot is to the right of the handle.

Anyone with any information on this pot or another forum better suited for this post would be greatly appreciated.
