Re: Los Angeles Rheingold

Any of you Rheingold experts know which Rheingold label was filled in Portland, Oregon by G. Heileman when the New York plant went on strike and G. Heileman shipped all the cans out to Portland and filled them there? Does anyone even know when they were striking...I am sure I could figure out the l...

Re: Strange Burgie Crimped Steel

One last note......back in the day, if you paid for postage, the breweries would send you air sealed examples of their cans. I have a case sent by Olympia to someone of air sealed cans.....1 of each that Olympia produced at the time....so they weren't only factory tour give aways....

Re: Strange Burgie Crimped Steel

In general , it was not uncommon to find tabs with a bottom lid on both ends. They generally are nothing special and were made that way at the factory by an employee (a common way to make money in the 1970's during the Beer Can fad for can company/brewery employees), were basically a mistake can (un...

Re: METALLIC GRAND PRIZE?

Don't know much about cans that aren't from the Northwest but that sure looks metallic? It would be easier if it was pictured next to the non-metallic/enamel version that is known. I have definitely had to put cans side by side before to decide if it one was a metallic variation or not. Eric Palmer

I actually found one this year for my shelves. So far this year i have seen three...after not ever seeing any prior to that(go figure). All had the same 1963 date and the same bug placement as yours....may not have made any other bug placements?

Re: Lucky 16oz with Green Lettering!

Here's my theory being a Automotive Painter for over 35+ years. There is no brown paint. you have to combine different colors together to get any brownish paint. I suspect the brownish paint they used by itself did not give them the color they wanted being to thin & translucent, resulting in poor c...

Re: Lucky 16 with Green Lettering!

Who’s to say Marc’s can wasn’t completely green colored and half the can lettering got oxidized to brown coloring? The fact that the glue stopped the oxidation due to limiting the contact with the air versus the green that is exposed to the air is pretty basic science. (green oxidation requires oxy...

As to value.....the rare ones....(less than a 6 pack known) I would put them in the $50 -$100 range. (Aloha for example).

Picked both of these up for $5 bucks at the flea market.
Reproductions? Anyone know?
I figured if they were reproductions they were still worth $5.
If not reproductions how old and worth anything more than $5?
