Re: Rarest cans by state - has there ever been a list?

I think all or most Production cans start out at the beginning as a Mock up can or prototype/concept can. SO, I would not be so quick to call the Goetz a fake or wrong artist rendering.

Since I have all the cones, flats and straight steel cans in the area (PacNW) I collect that are even remotely obtainable, aluminum is the only thing left for me to acquire.

I collect variations of NW cans and wouldn't consider either that hard to find.

I think can company differences often denote a label or color chang...
