Hope You Didn't Get FOILED

EBayer Bart2112 is selling cans stating they are Foil label test cans. This is a total lie. Nothing more than a sticker over a cheap beer can. Sad what people will do to make a buck. I guess he could say he didn't know.......wait not possible you can see the beer can through the sheet you would never be able to see through foil. I paid a whopping $60 for this can. There were also a few K-Mart cans that went for hundreds.

No. Not gonna waste my time, there is no way you could think this was foil. I actually had doubts and emailed him days before asking for validation but did not get a response. Should have known better but what if it was in fact valid, then that would have been a cool find. What I do think is someone found these prints in foil and had them copied on vinyl stickers. I'm sure that somewhere these foil test prints do exist but not on this can. Conveniently the seller does not accept returns. Thank goodness for eBay money back guarantee.

Is the label not a real foil label? Canning companies would often glue prototype labels on to other cans just for display purposes probably for sales meetings and such.
If the label is fake, that's one thing......if it's a legit prototype label on some other can....I'm not sure that's an issue.

No glue vinyl sticker. See pic above I have my finger between the two. They left the paper on so the sticker would look smooth like foil
