Generation III - Master List

#1

Post by kamsquared »

GEN III zips have the classic zip opening, instructions, & PAT PEND stamped in the top.
The PAT PEND referred to the U-shaped tab construction (http://www.freepatentsonline.com/3215306.pdf)
All of the tabs in GEN III were U-shaped.
Tops had indentations for structure and were seen with & without “smiley beads” around the opening. Examples below.

    Picture of the can face
    Picture of the can top
    Picture of the can seam (GEN I, GENII, & GEN III only)
