A little Rustybunch thread mining on Sunday.
Included some pics of what I think are the conetop potion of the famous Dave Stark collection and the 4 cans I have.

Royal Finest, Silver, Wacker J-Spout, Leidigs Deluxe. and this just the conetop portion!

Aside from how much this cost, the other thing that is amazing is how much time it must have taken to track down leads, build a network of knowledgeable people, and so forth. Money alone will not build a collection like this.
Focus: Cones and flats from Michigan, South Bend, and Fort Wayne. Foreign cans only if I bought them myself in the country of origin.

100% true. Amazing collection.

Here are a couple from the pic above posted by @Clarkston1 that now reside on my shelf. Fehr's is the real deal. Not a drinking mug conversion. I have several of his flats as well but would have to do some digging to identify which ones.

Dave Stark certainly had an eye for quality

Not sure how many Stark cans I eventually ended up with, but I know I had these 3:

Rand, the Liebmann's was a Stark can. You may have gotten another one or two from me? In the years after the initial sale, I wound up with a number of Stark cans, most of them now gone from my shelves.

Really impressive, especially since he collected the shiny stuff. Rare cones he was missing? Off the top of my head both the Travis cans, the early Dutch Club low pro, the white Maier and the green Pilsers J. Of course the Kato and Schlitz test cans but I don't really count those.
