Re: Iron City Zip - Correct Lids?

Kurt,
I looked at my can and the top and bottom lids are the same as the ones on this can. And, as Al said, all of the original cans I know of have VA tax stamps on the bottom.

Today they started tearing down the Holiday Inn/Ramada/Howard Johnson's in Fredericksburg. We had some great times at that hotel. Unfortunately the hotel outlived its time. Here is a picture.

Re: A BIG THANK YOU TO UNCLE DAEV !

Uncle Daev did me a favor too. I bought a painted bottle from Conehead and then went to the RB room to buy raffle tickets from Daev. About an hour later, I went in my room and couldn't find the bottle. I searched in every room that I had been in and didn't see the bottle. I then went in the RB room ...

Re: Rare SWEET LIFE pull tab for sale.

I have a dumper. I think it is the one in the USBC book. Jim Wolf had a dumper but he upgraded his to an all original indoor can. So, that makes at least 3 I have seen in addition to this one.

Re: Wisconsin Club zip-relidded or genuine?

Barry,
From the picture there appear to be some tell-tale scratches along the top rim. If they are really there it would make me think it is relidded. Are the scratches prominent with the can in hand?

Re: Wunderbar Tab(Black Can) Question?

Jim,
They were left in the brewery when it closed. The holes were punched in the can so they could never be filled.
I have a top-opened one without the hole. As you said, you don't see them often without the hole.
