Re: Help Identifying Cone Tops

Okay, what is with the Grahams Ale cone?
I did search our vast amount of RB info.
The upper left can is the Grahams Ale. These were Bill Christiansen's cans.
I did meet Bill at a show in NJ in late '70s.
Unknown cans? Not in any collections? Lost cans?
Real? Not real?

Yes.... and I forgot the disclaimer - It is an empty used container.

However, 80-27 is IRTP. Both of these are not. Should be 80-30 because of the side panels.
