Re: took a chance on some tabs

Indeed nice score. 99 out of a 100 times when buying tab collections you end up with endless Pittsburgh brewing cans, mash, JR, billy and if you're lucky you get a Harley Davidson can.

Re: Genesee Zips , fans, and tabs and question

KB we have dug 12 horse zips more than once but never more than a couple at a time, at least ones worthy enough to bring back. I know i used to have fan tabs of the naturally more refreshing to and it would have been something that we found as well. Just went rooting through to see what i have left ...

Re: Day late and 130 dump trucks short!

I’d find out who the trucking company was that hauled off the dirt and ask where it was taken to. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk It would be taken to a landfill for disposal. They wouldn't just dump it somewhere else. Also just about every dump that's out there the EPA would deem toxic if they ...

Re: Aside Wax, what have you put on your cans to preserve?

How does wax permanently alter a can? Wax can be removed but you might want to be careful what you use to take it off. A de-greaser that is safe for the paint is all that's needed.

Very interesting item you have Leon. This is pre zip code as that program was ramped up in 1963.

Leon do you have one of those bore scopes that hook to a phone? Might be able to see through the slot with one of those. How old is the sticker? Period to the can age? There is no zip code for the tavern address which is strange.....

Any chance it was just the make of the Mug? Also many addresses have changed since the inception of 911. So two places could have the same address, one old and one newer.

Re: What The Heck Is This?

Years ago when all this started some said it would never be a problem in this hobby and anyone who buys them is an idiot. Things like this is what will drive away new and novice collectors. Nothing like being called an idiot after you spend hundreds on a can for your new collection.
