I just got rid of one, $15 for the whole group.
Had no idea it was a tough can.

Does that mean you did not dump any non IRTP Pfeiffers? LEON.
I dug plenty of those too. Just not as many as the IRTP version.

2018 Dumper Stats

Just thought of this idea to keep track of what kind of cans are dumped the most throughout the year. My first time doing this and I don’t have exact numbers. To qualify on the list, the can must be brought home. Doesn’t necessarily end up on my wall or in my totes. So: Top dumped cans of 2018: Prew...

Re: No Opener Needed 1962-1963

Awesome post! Archive worthy. This will really help me date cans to the month as I’m dumping in 2019.

Also, it’s worth noting that schlitz had a pull tab bottle cap on their glass cans in the mid 60’s sometime.

Oh I see, but it seems odd a pop bottler would use these...especially in Canada.

That’s what I was thinking.
The bottles from that specific bottler are probably a little different than the traditional glass can.

I like how the silver mountain outlines resemble Fallopian tubes leading to ovaries and the river basin resembles the uterus.

You may never look at the can the same way again.

You're welcome.

Re: Pfeiffer 9 can scenic set rareness rating

I never gave this much thought but I’d agree with everyone above. I’ve never ever seen a dark sailboat can anywhere. And for the record, none of these are really easy to dump IMHO. 1000’s of pfeiffers later and I’ve only found the deer and fish can (not the pike). I always say, if you dig a pfeiffer...
