Somebody scored on Craigslist

I was supposed to meet a guy in St Louis today to see some cans he had for sale. I get an e-mail last night that the cans had been sold. He had a Bluebonnet cone with great color and no oxidation to the gold, Pilsers cone, Altes cone, Griesedieck Crowntainer and a Hudepohl cone for $400. I'd been ta...

Re: New Acquisition Wednesday

I just received this can from Jim Hall. I had one back in the 80's but sold my collection. It is nice to have one back on the shelf.

I offered to sell the guy my Regal mug for $4,000 so he could flip it and make $1,500. Mine is in better shape too!

Another side collection

In addition to Cone Top lighters, I also collect cone top can/mugs. These are cans that were given out during promotions or if a keg of beer was bought. These cans have factory applied handles and rolled lips. I know there is a Schmidts Premium Beer cone mug but I haven't been able to get ahold of o...

One of my many side collections is Cone Top Lighters. Below are photos of what I have so far. It's been awhile since I added a can to this collection. Does anyone out there have something I might be able to add to this endeavor? IMG_3605.JPG IMG_3606.JPG IMG_3607.JPG IMG_3609.JPG IMG_3610.JPG

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.

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?

The brewery then changed its name to the Metz Brewing Co. These are all U-Permit bottles. These came from the storage unit of a deceased collec...
