Various size pop cans

#1

Post by stringsx24now »

As a mostly BEER can collector I like the cans from all sizes, 7,8,12,16, 32, gallon and 5L American cans. I know there has been a couple of threads recently that has featured a few 16 oz pop cans, and I know I have seen some pop cans in 7 or 8 oz size, as well as I have one 5L pop can.
My question is this: are the 16 oz cans rarer or harder to find in pop vs beer? Especially older cans? Speaking of older cans, I know there are 6 or 10 oz conetop pop cans. Are they about the same in difficulty to acquire, or harder? I just don't see that many around, but of course I go to BEER shows and not pop-related events which probably impacts what I see.

6 ounce cone top wine extremely tough
6 ounce soda cone top tough except the C&C cans they are a little more abundant
Quart soda cone tops. Very tough grade one. Some avail off grade but even those are scarce.
16 ounce also limited straight side steel. Several pull tabs but not many and even fewer flat tops
Good luck in the hunt
Interested in all flat and Cone Soda and Water cans.

8 ounce tab-top soda cans mostly aluminum with barcode, common
10 ounce flat top soda hard to find clean, but most are fairly common in dumper. Quite a few were part of the Boeing wind tunnel find.

Now that is cool! That obviously helped the stewardesses (flight attendants in today's parlance) tell what flavour they were when packed in the rolling service cart drawers.
