Re: Unrolled

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! Every now and...

Re: Lone Star Handy Keg Gold Can Question ??

We have done the math on this before. If it truly came from the 1,000,000th barrel, there is 31 gallons in a US beer Barrel. There is 128 FL oz in a gallon, so that equals 3,968 FL oz. Divided by 12 fl oz, that is only 330 12 ounce cans. There is no way that was the total number of cans produced in ...

Re: 11oz Flat Top Cans

The Schlitz 11oz from Longview, Texas is unusual because they all have an Oklahoma stamp on the bottom. These were shipped north to Oklahoma, not to the west coast like most of the 11oz cans.

Re: Metbrew Rubout

I have a Metbrew flat top with a flat gold lid like the Old Ranger rub out. These are fairly common as I have seen a number of them over the years.

Re: Lone Star -Tough or Common ??

The OKC Lone Star soft top / tab is a tad harder to find than the San Antonio version, but is still not difficult. $10 is about right for the tab in grade 1. There are thousands available with a clean body but with a rusty bottom for $1 - $5. However, super clean, bottom opened cans are much tougher...

Re: Bob H. scores unpictured/unlisted tab at Cabin Fever!

Because of the well-known existence of the Esslingers by Ruppert - Reading, it makes sense for this can to exist and it has been talked about from time to time for a while. It is awesome to see proof! The real question is why these cans even exist. Does anyone know the back story? Did the workers at...

It is usually east to spot former lighters that have been converted back to a regular can.

Over the years, the paper got wet or simply absorbed moisture, leaving humidity ...

Re: Odd, Unlisted(?) Bohack Variation

In my experience, water fade turns reds to a dark, burgundy color like on the Lone Star below. I don't believe the Bohack is a water fade, but I am willing to go with chemicals in the soil causing the fade theory.

I agree with Steve, it's an artist's rendering or a change made by the art department to make the label "pop" in the black and white printing process.

That being said, I would love to find one!

I have seen a similar piece on eBay. It appears to be a design sample from Price Brothers. Lone Star did make a couple of Brut signs, a round plastic sign about a foot and a half in diameter, as well as a clear lucite block with the Brut logo printed on it, but they never made a sign like the design...
