Very tough, But I only see pre pro Michigan labels get over $200 & more. Post Pro are usually well below $200 & sometime only $5 bucks. But if any post pro Michigan label should get over $100 I'd say the Walker is one & maybe Regal but I may be bias on these or just more aware of how tough they are. Before I got my brown & yellow label Walkers I seen one on ebay, maybe 10 years ago & it was a big POS, Rough, beat up & half missing. Figured I'd get it cheap being beat to hell. That POS Still got $30 & I was outbid. LEON.

Sometimes life affords you the opportunity to correct past regrets. Selling these cans had loomed ever larger in my mind over the last couple years as a glaring mistake. I was able to reacquire them earlier this spring and 3 or 4 months later I still feel a sense of relief having these back on my shelf.
Six of these cans were originally acquired in 2005 at the Brookdale Lodge Show in California - one of my best collecting moments ever! Since that is such a bright spot in my memory, not having the cans associated with it just felt wrong. I felt like I'd sold off a part of myself...

Thanks Beamer, in hindsight I should have kept my entire Indiana collection, but I got most of the important ones back and even added some new ones.

Congratulations, Steve! I've managed to retrieve a few lost sheep the past couple years also, and doing so provides a unique sense of satisfaction.

Beamer, the one you have and the one I now have are the only two from Drewrys that I've had a shot at in 20 years. I'm only aware of one other on-grade can and a dumper. There must be others, but it certainly has been elusive to me.

I remember picking the can up and seeing it was from SB. My best can for sure from Cabin Fever.

Love the Krueger quart! First label I ever had as a kid. Only a dumper but I still have it.
"Still looking for 2 specific examples of the following cans I traded away years ago.
Berghoff LP cone: indoor with rusted seam and slight touchup on white stripe in upper right of label. Also a copper colored Drewrys "Taurus/Gemini" scene; indoor with yellow smoke damage and top lid half cut out.

Will trade a better examples, other cans or buy from you!

First one I've seen. Even works!

If anyone has a different Malt Lager sign let's see it.

Always looking for any Malt Lager breweriana. I have some labels, a couple patches, the light, and a schlitz tap knob so far.

I couldn't confirm this 3.2% to 7% variation until a find occurred in Ohio maybe 15 years ago. They were in barn/crawlspace condition, and not particularly good barn/crawlspace condition - all had smoke damage and pitting, and several were grade 4. At least a dozen were found, maybe 20. I got the first one that came out, and it was the best one I saw. I sold it to Todd Bakemeier several years later, and he repainted it. The can proved elusive as I work to replace the cans I sold, but this one doesn't appear to be from that find and is the nicest I've seen by a fair margin. And it showed up on Wednesday.

Nice pickup Marc. I saw that can fly through Ebay. Glad you ended up with it.

My avitar on this site is the same variation. Very similar condition. I've had mine since the late 70's. Telephone worker (remember land lines?) found three in a crawl space in Dayton, OH. Of course, he collected cans too as everyone did back then. I was a kid and collected with my Dad. We traded something like 30-40 tabs for it. In hindsight, a pretty good deal... for us.

Can still sits on my shelf today.

Of course, he collected cans too as everyone did back then. I was a kid and collected with my Dad. We traded something like 30-40 tabs for it. In hindsight, a pretty good deal... for us.

Can still sits on my shelf today.
Thanks for your comments, Bob. I'm glad to hear that I didn't outbid you on a home state can again, and information is always appreciated. I passed on one of the grade 4 examples a few years ago and didn't see another until this one came up. I had the same variation on the Bruck's Jubilee years ago, and I still haven't been able to replace that one. It's interesting how tough some of the Ohio alcohol variations are, and particularly the fact that it's not the same variation that's scarce on all of them. The 3.2% Bruck's seems toughest to me, but that's the easiest Jubilee as far as I can tell. One Noch-Eins is common in 3.2 to 7, and the other is scarce that way and common in 3.2. And I still can't confirm a silver one with no alcohol statement. And of course, the blue Hudepohl is an alcohol statement can. Grossvater stamped the alcohol statements on the bottom, and I'm not crazy enough to collect that. Yet.
