Here's a pic of a couple 6 oz. Pabst cans that I recently had rolled. The can labeled as Pale Dry was undocumented before now:

Nice cans - or ex-sheets! Where did you find the 6-oz lids?

Pokey,

I found the lids on a couple old automotive additive cans from the 50/60's. However, putting the lids on ended up being a pain-staking process. The metal on them was too soft. Also, since there was no chuck for the lids, they had to be applied to the Pabsts using hand tools. We're thinking that using some type of juice can lid might be the best solution, if we could find them in the proper size. It was costly for me, but well worth it!
