Re: O Canada

The comments above about the beer cones are spot on. YOu can over time assemble all of the Canadian cones except the ones that are mentioned above. Also good to collect is the soda cones - lots of soda cones from Canada and that is a set that you can complete, except for the Brio from Pure Springs. ...

Previously Unknown Cooks Cone Transition Can

Always exciting when Art LaComb says to me at Canvention "you are not going to believe this cone I have". So Art says to me that he has a Cooks cone that looks like none of the known cans. I'm having a hard time with that, but sure enough upon inspection we do indeed have a previously unknown can he...

Re: flt bottom cone question

Ah, that was very helpful. So on the "permit" variation, the "Tax Paid" wording is in slightly different positions. I had not picked up on that previously.

Re: What database do you use for your collection?

Recommendation: Put your spreadsheet on Google, and then make sure that you share it with one or more family members and another can guy that you trust. That way if you should die, others will understand what you have so they can properly take care of things. Also, once it's on Google, you cannot po...

Re: Soda Cone Tops

Some more perspective for this thread - last July I reached 200 soda cones. Last week - finally - the number became 201. Not from a lack of trying and looking for sure! They are just tough to find. Matt

Wielands was probably one of the worst cans to send to a super hot and humid environment. No way that they would have survived very long. Matt

Ah, Neil is correct. Those two non-IRTP variations are very tough. That's the first one I've seen. However - there is also an IRTP variation, and I do have that one. Enjoy. Matt

Carlings WF Cone

Many years ago (20+) I had the Carlings WF cone that is pictured at 156/25 - Probably the worst photo in the book. When I sold my old collection I returned that can to whoever had found it to start with. Now two decades later - look what now shows up, fresh from Japan! I'm pretty sure that makes two...

Re: Tough Hi Pro cones with USBC <$1000+ value

It's my old can, and yes it is the same can that is in the book. I always thought it was probably real, but over the years while I had the can the views of those who looked at it were 50/50. I don't recall the canning code, but it was the same as the flat, which didn't help its chances. The first ti...

Regarding the Burger Ale cone that was mentioned earlier in the thread - I sold the only one known about 15 years ago from my old collection (I think that it had come from Lewandowskis earlier)_. There was considerable debate as to whether the can was a real cone or not. Never could get consensus. S...

The autographs thing is a bunch of BS in my view. Lots of people trying to make a fast buck on something that is not real easy to really nail down a value on.

When you send your invoice to the buyer, eBay has a function where you can adjust the shipping so that the default shipping for each can can be changed to a combined price.
