I have not followed this thread all the way, so please excuse this post if not in line with the other one-known cans. But this can is believed to be unique. 2.2 liter (4 pint) early-mid 1960's flat top 'party' can from U.K. ... I have little information on it, but is in a collection in Switzerland.

The Brown Derby doesn't quite make the cut, being a color variation rather than a major label difference. I've never heard of it before, though. Neat can.

Jo Mama is the first to suggest listing unique foreign cans here. I like the international stuff and as inclusive a Bunch as we are, we tend to be like the Instructionalites and diminish the specialties we don't collect. Problem is, I don't have the expertise. I COULD photograph all Lebo's unique cans while at his show in a few weeks and toss 'em up here if there was much interest. He certainly has the expertise, and might benefit from feedback and corrections.

I know the Aussie stuff well enough: the early Toohey's Flag Ale, which I got to fondle when I was there in 1995. Too bad I didn't take a pic, or maybe I did. It would be in with all my old prints, and I gave CG my Aussie photo guide a couple years back which does have a small thumbnail. But that's pretty much it.

Marc missed B/G this year so we never got to hash out the Brown Derby/Associated dilemma. How about Springfield, Marc?

I have 4 casey lager cans in mint condition completely sealed with no beer in them. Someone gave them to me as a gift years ago. They have no holes and they were made without beer. anybody know how much they would be worth. I think they are one of a kind

Thanks for posting. I think you are refering to the Casey's cans with the baseball players on them. These are very common and you would usually have a difficult time getting more than 50 cents a piece for them.....air sealed or not.

I was reading the Class book this morning on the household throne,and wondered about a few of these cans.Thought I'd resurrect it for gits and shiggles.Some great information here-my main question was the Brandt's can.

I submitted this Rhinelander for the BCCA book but was told it is not a real can. They are considering it a misprint.
The can is full and has a stamp on the bottom. It has a Pepsi under the grey background. It is missing the white snow. It is my contention that the snow was not missed but it could not be printed because they made these into rubouts by turning the background into a grey enamel to use up the pepsi body blanks.

Does anyone else have one or is it a One Of? I was told if I can find a few more,,, the BCCA will put it in the book. If we cannot find any more than it is a one of.

The can was sold on Eaby some time ago, and although it wasn't a can I desired, it intrigued me. A red " Derby " that also has the Beer in red. Unlike any of the other Brown Derby's listed. I know it's not an uber exciting can, and I should have saved all the pics, but the rest made it appear original, not rolled. Maybe someone else here saved more pics, or won it. Seems like there might have been a brief discussion on it in the GD section?

The Eblings White Head Ale in the USBC is the same one Dick A. rubbed out from under a Wagner's qwat. I picked up that 1940's Mapex Mothball lid cut out from an Eblings white head sheet, so at least we can confirm the color scheme was correct on Dick's.

How about the corresponding Ebling Beer similar to the Whitehead?
