Post by Tylox » Sat Apr 27, 2019 8:00 pm

I found a large box in the attic of the home I bought. The photo attached is the 204 cans I found.All the cans still have the pull tabs, opened from the bottom. Any cans of real value? Image

There are some amazing cans there. The silver Dads and the RC flavors + Lime Crush are out of this world, to name a few. Makes me want to start collecting soda cans..again. Ziphippie

Are any of the cans flat tops with no pull tab on the top to open. opened with a can opener instead. Most look common but I see a few good ones in there & some Michigan ones I collect. I'd easily give $204 dollars for them or more but I'm sure soon you will be getting bombarded with e-mails & Private Messages with offers. Let the games begin. LEON.

I'm not going to bid against everyone, but if you sell a lot of these and not quite all of them, please let me know. Definitely a few in there I need!

I made an offer and was told it was sold to someone else. Must have been a buddy. Oh well there were only 14 of interest for me and I am hoping a couple of those show up here or eBay.

I also sent a few PM's with very a generous offer but I never head back from this person.
My guess is they will be on Ebay soon.
