Becker's Best O/I wall find

#1

Post by goodbet50 » Sat Jun 09, 2018 6:58 am

A small group of Becker's Best O/I cans have surfaced on the antiques market recently. These cans were found in the wall of a building in Utah some years ago, but the antiques dealer who found them never did anything with them until early May of this year. There were approximately 30 +/- cans, all of which had some dings and scratches from banging into each other. As usual, the current value of the can will be depressed until all are sold and some time passes. I purchased a number of the better examples while at the spring Brimfield antiques show.

Thanks for the heads up! Which variation? Would be cool if it were the Kan-Kegs/Lilek #99. Do you have pictures of the group/condition?
