KEITH NORTONS BANK HEIST FIND

#1

Post by CMD »

About 10 or 15 years ago , Keith Norton got a lead from a former can company employee and got this little collection of cans. Minty is the term to describe them.
They all had bank lids on them thus the name of the find being called the bank heist find

Thanks for the pictures Dan. Those look cleaner than what might have even been available on the store shelves back in the day. That would indeed be a heck of find, and how could one hide their excitement when talking with the seller!

Now I thought the seven Johnny Pfeiffer bank cans, all different colors, also came from this find. Maybe just no picture available? Please take a look at the following MBC link, clicking through from variation 1..7 (below the can pictures). These are all bank cans.
