My #1 want - Pabst can - any leads? Just love this shine

#1

Post by mrkugels » Sun Feb 16, 2014 1:18 am

This is a can I would love to add to my collection. I have always loved it but have never had a chance to own one. Any leads or info on the can? I don't know much about it. How tough they are etc... I would love one of these and an olive drab some day.

Thanks,
Roger

It took me forever to get a clean example of that can. Honestly I have not seen a better example then the one on my shelf. Be patient, they do turn up every so often.

I am NOT a Pabst collector per say, but I got mine from Steve Gordon through Matt Menke at the Zion Crossroads show in 2014. It appears to be a rolled can. Beautiful shape. He may have had more but I cant remember. I would check with him though.
I received my OD can from the lady in Italy that is on ebay.

The last one I saw was at the 'beniak1844', (I remember him from eBay, did not know him personally) huge PBR estate auction here in Milwaukee about five years ago. The bids quickly escalated beyond my budget and comprehension- I still don't have one of those silver beauties. Bjorn

This metallic WF can comes from Milwaukee & Peoria Hts. Here's my pair. They're pretty tough to find and the condition is often iffy since the highly metallic finish seems to suck up humidity and get spotty. My Milwaukee is shown on the left and looks kinda scratchy. Peoria on the right and that one does have some humidity issues. If you run across a nice shiny A1+ can for less than $2,000 I say you should get it.
