Every one knows or think Schlitz was the first cone top produced as that was all the adds say. I sorta agree that Schlitz was the first but not the one that created the first can on the market.. I think Heileman's was the first cone top produced. There are 3 or 4 cones with out the IRTP that Old Sty...

Growing up in Nebraska the Schmidts scene cans were so cool. But I like this one better. I got this one for a song and on grade. Just 22 bucks and asked the seller If he had any more and said the only one. He was big into sports cards and coins. It was a very very impression collection. I guess you ...

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

It is this can from Nebraska. A small Brewery that produced just one can in the late 1950's . The Storz Farmer and Winterbru flats from the late 1930's are sexy and get top dollar when for sale but this cone is hard to find.

Just saying....Brent G

At $65.00 per can this is a no brainer. Worst case is that you sell the 5 cans for $400.00 and that = free can. But you should do better than that.

Good luck.

This is an interesting can. Being pre war (1930's) and non OI w/3 var. you would think a long run like 5+ yrs or so. I think more like 2 yrs like around 1937-1938 and then brought back in the 1950's in the white flat. I am not sure If one var. is tuffer than the others but a question still sticks in...

Re: Storz Winterbru

Several years ago I thought this can was over rated as a 1000+ by the USBC book as some were out there and you could get one for good price and not break the bank....Now you never see one...Seems to me way over priced but still a cool can.
