Re: Silver Fox Sign

This is the Silver Fox sign from Oklahoma City. This sign was unknown until the early 90's when at least 100 (maybe more) we're found inside a barn in Oklahoma, near Ardmore. The barn was insulated with the signs, back side out, and were tacked up on the interior walls and ceiling to hold the insula...

Re: Production can or test can? I can't see them using this ad today

That can was actually produced as a drinking cup and given out during the Spring of 78 in the spring break areas of Florida like Daytona and Fort Lauderdale.

It is pretty common in older collections.

This is a bummer because I enjoy a number of Pabst's brands from time to time. However, it is hard to feel sorry for a company that has closed dozens of breweries* over the last 40 years to whine about not having anyone to brew for them. * Pabst and the companies it purchased over the years closed o...

Re: Feeling crimped

I've seen plenty of crimp steel Pfeiffer's, but they were all by Heilman. I've never seen a crimp North Star from any brewery.

Come to think of it, these two cans are the only crimp cans I've ever seen from Associated.

Re: Hamm's Alpen Glen 32-26 and 32-27

I believe the only difference between the two is the lid. One is stamped "LA" for Los Angeles and the other is stamped "SF" for San Francisco. I don't think there is any difference on the can body.

Re: Juice top lids

I would guess that almost any Eastern Brewing Company 60's / early 70's can could be found in a juice tab. Fischer's ABC Garden State Old Bohemian Old German I have seen these with older, shiney top juice tabs and "newer" versions on a tin free steel (dull) top, just like Reingold Malta cans. - Mike

Re: Zip types

Cool photo. I think the Regal in the top right corner is the same as a Hamm bone and the two slot tabs ARE zips.

I also think the juice top with a tab pull (not the ring pull version) should be classified as a zip as well.
