Seems like the same cans go up for sale on EBay etc. with the occasional gem popping up from time to time. Would love to see all the hidden treasures all you boys and girls have been hoarding. Please post a pic of your most prized (valuable and hard to find) soda flat and soda cone. Looking forward to a real droole session.

Well for cone top it'd have to be my Mission Orange...of course better condition would bring higher value. For flat top that was really hard to decide between 12oz and 10oz!...I do have two really rare Shasta 12oz's..and a couple of tough 10oz but I guess you just want to see 1 right?......so it came down to the Rarest impossible Crush can in North America :mrgreen: IMHO.......and way way under valued in the guide!...again IMHO :mrgreen: ......The Crush Cola :smt023

Well I may as well share some more!....doubt you will have many posting :smt009.. :smt017

Many of the Lucky Strikes have surfaced over the last several years and are obtainable in dumper condition....tough to find on grade though, and they would bring a good dollar!

I just love the Old Colony cones!....I still have to find a Cola to finish of my set.

Here are mine. Flat is supposed to be 1 of 5 known to exist. Cone is super tough to find in any condition. Actually I don't think I've ever seen one offered up except this one I bought about 16 years ago on eBay.

Those are sweet!...I don't think that cream soda is listed in my soda guide?...maybe in the online version?, The Clicquot's in the back are nice too!

Great Cans Guys,
Nice cones, the Lucky Strikes and Old Colony's are awesome. The Crush cola is one I didn't know existed.

Wow! Nice set of Clicquot Clubs, Really like the clown ones, I have one rough example.

This Graf's Diet is probably my best soda can, certainly my favorite. Dug up in Northern Wisconsin.

Graf's diet Black Cherry, a can with an attitude

I only have four soda cones in my collection. The Double Cola I dug in Oregon and the Spur Cola I got from digger Dwight at my last Blue Gray show I assume he dug it in PA maybe NY

And I can't forget about my ultra rare Cone top Nesbitts Orange I dug. I only ever dug one and so I'd have to say this is my rarest can. I don't know about monetarily where it sits with beer cans. But when I put all
My soda and beer cans together this is my rarest.

Early Canadian Shasta's are really tough to find, I suspect part of the reason is the limited distribution to just western Canada....the 12oz are almost impossible!....these are my best flat tops.
The grape is 12oz and one of my faves! The circus top cola is 10oz and so far this is the only can I have ever seen...no other flavors like pineapple cola, vanilla cola..etc., The Valencia Orange draft was a wall find.
20160625_171013.jpg
This Grape can was made in the USA but packed in Vancouver BC....the only other flavors in 12oz is cola and orange...and of course my Lemmon-Lime not yet catalogued in Dave's soda guide and the one only known. The grape can is probably common in The USA but what makes this can even rarer compared to the other Canadian examples is the fact that it is marked 'The Shasta water Company'.
20160625_171032 (2).jpg
20160625_171111.jpg
And here is the Lemmon-Lime 12oz, marked Shasta Beverages Ltd., Vancouver BC ......it's pretty rough, but also pretty rare!
