Thanks. It jumps off the shelf and totally eclipses anything I put next to it.

Every time I try to take a break from buying for a few months, something I can't ignore pops up.

It has a new lid, but I think I can live with that on this can.

Wow, nice! So that's what that can looks like without a bunch of humidity. Certainly cleaner than mine. :smile:

Where exactly did a can like that "pop up"? Dealer?

Great acquisition for sure, congrats.

Thanks, Bob. A friend/dealer acquired it from a non-collector in Oklahoma. It apparently was saved by a relative who worked at either the can company or the brewery.

Today is Wednesday right! Pulled beliw out of a collection that was given to me last night. Each of several hundred cans in collection was carefully wrapped in 1988 dated newspaper. Unfortunately, the cones on 2 cans on top right were removed. Menominee's cream colored label doesn’t appear to be in book nor is the Colt Malt Lager zip. Kappy's 'dogbone' (?) tab is crazy looking. Check out the Schlitz Tall Boy misprint.

Wow, the Genesee 12 Horse is a great can and it looks like it will clean up a lot. Congratulations!

Do you think that could be discoloration from cigarette smoke? Too bad about the cones. Those cans look nice.
Focus: Cones and flats from MI, South Bend, Fort Wayne, and Toledo. Foreign cans only if I bought them myself in the country of origin.

The can on the right came in the mail today. Yes, it's very off grade but it is still an upgrade so I'm happy. I was all set to get rid of the one on the left when it occurred to me this can came in both a metallic and non-metallic version. Maybe I actually have two different cans. Just kidding. The one on the left will go at some point. :lol:

I make exceptions for older Chicago cans but not for the newer Wisconsin cans. Also, I have Marion 12 oz. and quart cones because the Grand Rapids equivalents cost too much.
