Yeah but the freakin shipping was $8.60.....still think it was a sweet deal.....I realize this is a much coveted Michigan can even for the likes of @YooperAho so I figure the $4.00 Buy-it-now was well worth it. Can was delivered today.

Images are from eBay but think they are good.......here is the link to the sale....https://www.ebay.com/itm/GILT-EDGE-S-S- ... true&rt=nc

Yeah, That was a good deal. I've seen them get $50+ before. But, I've always felt this can & the Geyer's & the common blue Sebewaing zip top always get way to much. LEON.

Tough can to find with good color and an intact seam. Nice pick up.

Usually they only have one good side and the other side is faded. Good pick up.

I just got rid of one, $15 for the whole group.
Had no idea it was a tough can.

That's one of those cans where a very respectable outdoor can is fairly commonly available, but a bottom opened 1/1+ can is virtually nonexistent.
