Re: New Acquisition Wednesday

I found an example of one of the rarest Coca-Cola cans... A first generation 12oz plain diamond from the UK. The 11.5 ounces cans with the bottle diamond are still pretty rare, but available. I had never seen a clean example of this can. This one has a lid very similar to the US test can lids from 1...

Re: Dads silver root beer

Yes - the can with only the license info would have had a graphic lid, showing the canner location. Mine is an original bank top though... Here is a pic showing the two different seams.

The can on the left only lists the license and is a brighter blue. The can on the right also lists the canner and is a darker blue. I’ll post the other seam later. Not at home now.

Re: Need help finding Noah

Value is what people will pay. I have a cap of $350 on zip code cans, but a clean Evervess might tempt me. There are 2-3 other ginger ales so who knows. There must be more.

Rolled Cans

I am interested in the perspective of the group on rolled cans. In the soda side, there are quite a few cans that only exist rolled, with less than one or two non-rolled examples. While this is only a sample, many of these are only available rolled. The one exception is the Cellu can - there are 3 o...

Re: Odd Painted Seam

It looks like it got hook bends, rather than glued. Glued seems will have a definitive raised straight edge. There are roller marks on the edge where it was smoothed down. The white seams are painted proof sheets. I've seen these in a lot of brands over the years. DT

On-grade Key Cream soda - pre-zip

Here's a really tough New York grocery (Key Food Stores - Brooklyn, NY) pre-zip brand. Only a handful of on-grade examples across all flavors. This is the first cream!

Nice! There are a few cans that I can see that kind of connection with. It must have taken you some time to find peace with the decision to let such an amazing collection go.

Thanks for the thoughts - makes a lot of sense! I sold my first soda collection in 2003 and really enjoyed the new hunt. Guess I have to wrap my head around the idea of looking at this differently. Might have to keep a couple cans though...

Hi Leon,
Thanks for sharing that. Really interesting back story! I’m a little surprised at how little it sold for given the history of what’s been available.

Follow up on the Faygo 1st generation cans. Outside of Leon's find of the seven BC in this post, there only appear to be a very limited additional examples. The rootbeer was identified in the Bates book, but not pictured. It was originally owned by Kevin Garrity of Ft. Worth, TX. The BC pictured in ...
