MDI cans are pretty tough / the 1st generation are impossible

Super cool. I have the easier version which in my opinion is still tuff. Never seen the ones you have. Nice find!

All set to go, planing on turning it up as we have to be off property by the April 9th start of NC wild Turkey season.
Really Nice of Hunt Club to let us dig.
See you in the morning. :smt023

Sorry for such a late reply but we didnt find anymore
I guess that why they are rare.
found 7 kept 4 sold three on Ebay but Ebay buyer kind of ticked me off so I canceled sale and gave them to a fellow Rusty Buncher
witch is what I should have done in the first place.
BTW canscards NICE Root Beer!

These where my keepers.
As far as Ive been able to find out only 3 root beers are known.
I would like to see any pics. of any MDI cans.
On my drive to work to Durham I see MDI trucks often and their logo is still the same as on can.
I would like to know how long they canned there own label.
Not many NC sodas where made in cans or at all.
