Western Family find!...undocumented!

#1

Post by Canadacan » Wed Nov 09, 2016 2:47 pm

This was a recent basement find that came out of Alberta...the only can documented from this brand and generation is a diet cola, that can in itself is really super tough! But to nail down six flavors of this early 70's generation is amazing! It may be the first generation, these are all PT and it is unknown if a FT exists.

Can you imagine the reaction if these were beer cans? I don't even collect soda cans, but this find is fascinating.

Yes I think so too!...funny thing today I noticed one of these cans showed up on ebay, in pretty spotted condition...and only 1 can, an orange flavor.
But so true...if only it were a beer..........

Weird how a fellow can go almost 30 years of collecting and never see certain cans....and then they just show up.

I know right. Then there's the ones that are out there that you can never find. I have several sets where I need just one can to complete.
