Re: 1937 can collector's cans pictured in newspaper

And to think that group pictured is not the entire collection, about 40 cans or more are not shown at time picture was taken, you can actually see some stacked behind. As well, with the passion Joe exhibits in writing can company and breweries to obtain cans, one can only imagine the brands he was a...

Re: A tragedy - Mike Wilbur get your Detector ready

Just a note... This lake is about 3 miles from my house... It was never a recreational lake until the 60's so wasn't much in way of camping or pits around even dam area. Amazingly the only pit I ever found there worthy of mention was a late 50s Falstaff flats hole... Not to say there couldn't be som...

Re: Lucky Ale

Lucky Sparkling Ale (half label red/ silver can) came first in 1939 to 1940 and is by far the easier of the two with both on grade and outdoor examples being available. http://www.therustybunch.com/phpBB3/download/file.php?id=35113&mode=view The Pre War Bankers Ale was a very short lived design that...

Re: A Strange Cone

Most likely they had a large number of already printed flat sheets that couldn't be used unless they modified them to remove the IRTP and 4 percent statement, so rather than scrap or completely overprint them they made a deal with the brewer to modify the existing stock. They simply made up a new pl...

Re: Padre zip - It does exist

Randy, not doubting what you held in your hand, but just making observations... My point is that design seems to me to be a earlier version, not of the era of a Gen III zip tab can lid used by National Can Company in 1965? era. So seeing the seam and can manufacturing company would be of great value...
