Rand,

I did a google search for matchbook cover pages.

http://www.hobbymaster.com/index.php/ca ... page-packs

I'm sure there other sources.

Re: Opening Instruction Beer Can Matchbooks

Here are the ones I have in my collection. I've seen a match cover with the red Miller Select can on it but I've been unable to find one for my collection.

New Facebook steinie page

I just created a Facebook page dedicated to the Steinie bottle. I'd like to see photos of what steinies other collectors have in their collections and I think that would be a good place to post them. Here is the link:

Re: Another Side Collection

I found a 1905 Encased Penny advertising Porto Rico coffee. I paid $2.00 for it. I put it on eBay and it sold to a collector in Puerto Rico for $169.99. He said it was a very rare piece. Found in the middle of nowhere New Mexico.

Another Side Collection

I picked up my first "Encased Coin" about 15 years ago when I was collecting Ballantine cans. It was a Ballantine Victory/World Piece encased penny from 1945. Since then I've found these encased coins from 21 different breweries. My latest acquisition is a 1916 coin from the Providence Brewing Co in...

Good information on what else might be out there in the form of a lighter. I would assume the Canadian cones are pretty pricey?
