Re: Lawnmower Lager?

It's actually been out quite awhile. Excel datestamps everything in my collection file automatically, and I added one of those to my collection just about exactly five years ago.

Re: Coors Not "Banquet" Beer

Looks to me like it's even older than that … I think it matches can #24 on p. 17 of the ABC book, three variations that were apparently pictured in the BCCA Brand Changes column between 1977 and 1980.

Re: Tougher aluminum or drawn steel cans

Eric, What kind of value would you place on these tough alums, middle of the road average price? I'm interested too how Eric might reply to this. Value is determined more by demand than by supply, and on a lot of these cans there is so little demand that the values can't be too high. But all it tak...

Re: Today’s Pics from the SFABCA bottle Show today

Looks like fun, and a good fit for me--not only do I collect sodas but my son collects milk bottles. I'm afraid it's a little too far for me though, especially at this time of year when I'm busy with final exams at school. Wish I could commit to taking part! On the other hand, if all goes well it's ...

You've got some nice sodas there. Dave Tanner's book says the Alaska Dry Grape is a much tougher flavor than the others. Looks like those will all clean up pretty well too!

What has bothered me recently on eBay is that a seller says that he/she will accept offers--and then if the offer is even a bit lower than the asking price, it is rejected automatically.

I don't have any references sitting at arm's length right now, but it looks like the same drawings (or at least the same style drawings) as some of the Pabst advertising of the late 60's/early 70's or so. I have a Pabst tray that I immediately thought of when I saw this.

That Hamm's Draft is an interesting sheet since it must have been for the "barrel-shaped" can--don't think they ever put one out as straight steel with that design. Looks in the photo like it's about the same height/width as the others, correct? Cool to see one of those flattened out!
