Re: Two Manhattan Ales - OI auction vs another

I dumped one in Virginia about eight miles from my house. It did have a Va. tax stamp. There were a few beers with it, but sadly only one Ale.

Re: Is this worth $50 ?

Though it looks touched up in the picture, if it is all original it is a steal at $50.

Re: Thought I was buying an upgrade... but wait just a minute!!!

Once you get the 3rd you might as well get the 4th, the Hi Pro to complete the set. :mrgreen: :smt005 :smt006 LEON. I think the Hi Pro with the English writing is the 3rd can to the set. If an English writing Lo-Pro can exists I have never seen it and I have always been a bit partial to UC cans. Th...

Re: Thought I was buying an upgrade... but wait just a minute!!!

Keep them both and eat soup for a week. They are stunning cans and are a great example of the getting everything German off cans right before the war. They have a great color and you will never need to upgrade them in the future.

Will somebody show the backsides of the cans to see if there is a Cap-Sealed panel? I would think that would be the best way to settle this discussion.

Re: Not your typical everyday Tudor.....

We dumped about 4-5 of the white ones at a whorehouse dump that Mark Porambo and I found some years ago and they really came out nice. Never seen the red ones though so I am thinking they never made it up to Virginia, but who really knows?

It is a missed can. They are pretty common, though they are cool because that is probably the last can the Norfolk brewery produced.

I thought of a couple of others that should bring in $1000+ in on-grade condition. White Horse, English Lad Brand Ale, and Diamond State which I have only seen in the books. Cool topic!

Re: Is this sign worth the price?

I think it would be worth more if it hadn't been printed upside down. Seriously, I would look at it really hard look because it is in such good condition, I would be afraid it was a reproduction. If it is the real deal, that is one beautiful sign and probably worth the price.

Thanks Charlie for the info. That is consistent with my impression the CCS did not make the Beer and Sparkling Ale quarts. However, I sure would have liked to see what Don Santora was displaying to be sure.
