Re: State of the beer industry

I disagree. There are something like 80 million 20 and 30 something people in the US. If we get four collectors out of every 100,000 people, that is 3,200 collectors - more than the present BCCA membership. And that is just from the 20 and 30 somethings. As those few get older, settle down, build be...

Re: Free Can Thread

At Blue/Gray last week, there were a couple of piles of free or 25 cent cans. I went through them and found a couple dozen cans that will be added to the USBC II Supplement. I also found a bunch more for my collection. Most of those were the uncommon variations of common cans. As many of you who pur...

Re: Question For Southern Guys

I found these and a couple more at the Omaha Canvention. We have added them to the supplement. There are a couple more as well. As the Supplement is trying to get all of the cans that are not aluminum or have ring tops, it looks like these were some of the last ring tops. For some reason, both Dixie...

Re: Ya I know, another unlisted can ?

Have not seen that version before. For the Supplement, we have made the determination that we do not add a can if the only difference is a canning company logo or MPC. The same thing goes for lid and seam variations. To do so would make the already gargantuan effort suicidal. Jim Wolf has done a goo...

Re: Colt 45 16oz Miami Variations.....

Yes, this is always difficult to notice unless you have the 2 cans side-by-side. It is even harder to see the differences in images. Jim has started using the convention that there is metallic (mirror reflecting), dull (brushed metallic) and enamel (opaque). Also, with the National Brewing Company (...

Re: Ortlieb's Mummer's Parade

As for what the Mummer’s Parade is, I would google it. My understanding is that it happens on New Years Day and the “acts” are primarily a bunch of people garishly dressed. I think there are groups that have been doung this for years. I lived near Philly for 15 years, but never went.

A couple of additional notes: - Most of the flats, cones and quarts are updated. There are quite a few new cans added. As we now have back panel images, I think we will find a large number of additional cans that have variances that were not apparent with the original single image. Should you find t...

Re: Dawson’s (in red letters!) Quart dumper NIB

We photographed the red letter Dawson at the Cleveland Canvention for the digital book. The gentleman that had it said that there were only a few known and that the one photographed was second best. I had never seen one before that.

Great find. A number of nice additional cans as well.

Thanx.

Re: Odd Painted Seam

It looks like a traditional design. I am guessing that the canning company changed the seam from the standard wide seam to the glued seam and the redesign of the label had not been completed so they just filled the area with white paint. Alternatively, the can may have been painted all white as the ...

While rare flats and cones are largely tied up in collections and are fully valued when they come to market, tabs may be perceived as more attainable. As there are sooooo many tabs, trying to get the rarest 100 may be doable when the same in flats and cones may not. Also, it is a lot cheaper to get ...

As it has been 40 years since my last stats class, I cannot easily help you. However, my experience in the real world has taught me that samples are seldom random.

There are no plans to list lid variations in either volume of USBC. We have included a comments section where I have suggested we include notes about lid variations and canning codes. So far, that seems to be beyond scope.

There are quite a number of Schlitz Beer and ML that are not in volume II. Several 16 oz. cans have been added, but there are more to be added as well.
