Would like to add photos eventually. In the meantime, please discuss 'Gansett stuff here if you like. If you have photos of cans on the list that are listed as "sim to" or "unpictured" please share them here too.

Dave, I believe I may have a can for the composite. See attached pics. It's the same as USBC2 95-39 except all the enamel gold is enamel silver. I understand it was found as a flat sheet with a large group of others. It's rolled with a zip top. I believe it's not a 95-39 can without the gold paint because it is definitely enamel silver all around, even the dots in the background. Thoughts?

I will add it to the list. I have a couple of different color 'experiments' on there, so this may be from the same run as one of mine is rolled too. The golds varied so much between canning companies that sometimes it's hard to peg what might have been a test run versus a different ink batch or printing glitch. But I'd bet yours is a legit color test given it's rolled.

Here are some cans that illustrate the many different golds out there.

1 - Ale Keglined zip top - highly metallic lacquer
2 - Ale CCC flat top - duller metallic, almost looks like a 'brushed' or satin finish. (Also note how much grayer the white background is)
3 - Beer Kegline softtop - moderately reflective metallic finish. This is what I would call the 'normal' gold found on most production cans from American
4 - Beer Keglined rolled as a flat - appears to be gold lacquer overprinted on white background, giving appearance of opaque yellow enamel
5 - Beer Keglined flat - same finish as #3 but bronze instead of gold
6 - Beer Keglined Flip Top zip - there are two variations of this can, one with the 'normal' metallic gold as in #3 above, and this one, which has opaque enamel gold. (There are other subtle design differences too, described in the composite)
