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.

Usually they only have one good side and the other side is faded. Good pick up.

Regal Pale and Regal Select. I think both brands from the same brewery used the same slogan.

Re: Does It Exist Or Not?

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!

Re: Vintage Brut Beer Sign Blueprint Salesman Sample

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...

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.
