Re: Essies

trying to buy, seller made an offer but I have no idea if its a good offer. Trying to get one of the beer pros here to give me an idea of value. I noted one in the Good Guys Auction recently that sold upwards $600, but must have been a special can? Any thoughts? Needless to say this deal may have f...

Re: Time Left: 1 Day(s) 13h : 23m : 12s Get to the Good Guys auction site and bid....

I used to worry about putting too many cans out on ebay at once, I even watched to make sure I didn't put them out there at a time when there were a lot of similar cans out there by other sellers. Basically I believed that just because I sometimes stop bidding after winning a can that others often ...

Just too make things clear, we were advertising our auction date before Dan M had even scheduled his auction, coincidence, I think not. It was a smart business decision on his part.

Re: new pabst export withdrawn free

Someone here picked up a WF Pabst Export from the Good Guys a few years back. I believe the Lewandowski twins owned both that are shown in USBC-OI, plus the Pabst Old Tankard Ale block letter (and both Millers), and they all went to Appleton when they got out.

Re: canning line dings/dents

Canning dents are small dents just below the rim of the lid caused by the pressure of the can lidding machine when the lid is applied. The machine cannot differentiate between slightly varying can body heights it set up to make them all the same height. They also occur during shipment of product......

He probably figured that nobody would steal his tools if they thought that they were getting Pabst. Now Miller would have been another story. I am trying to picture a Miller roof top carrier on a GTO!

Re: "no artificial gas" Meister Brau

John,
I know that we have had a few pass through our hands over the years. I don't think that it is as rare as once thought, but in no way is it common or easy to find one. We turn many at shows looking. Great can!

Re: DISCUSS EBAY RESULTS HERE (post auctions in reference section)

BeerCansPlus sold this can on Ebay for $128, with a $60 price sticker on the bottom.

Re: Nothing like a little weed killer in your beer......

Not to hijack this post but with more states legalizing marijuana, and craft brewers such as Blue Moon starting to infuse beer with THC, by next year the topic will be nothing like a little "Killer Weed" in your beer instead of "Weed Killer" in your beer!

I noticed when I travelled all across Michigan's U.P. (upper peninsula) last spring the roads were really nice, felt like I was in another state. Seems like they only really suck real bad around the Detroit area. LEON.

Re: Tab Question , The Actual Tab part ?

My guess, looking at both, it looks like maybe positioning during the striking process or possibly different dies or die wear/adjustment may be the cause of the differences.

As you can see it is there just not as prominent. Some others also that way and some completely flat with aluminum stamped on them. More flat than raised ones.

After looking a bit closer while some have a bit of a ridge starting above and ending below the word aluminum, none are as prominent as the one that you have pictured.
