Don,

Those are the same three flat bottom variations I have, and I haven't seen any others. I have the same three variations on the Garryowen Ale, but I've never seen the Pale Ale flat bottom with "D-22". I've been looking for it for 20 years, have asked about it here several times, and cannot even confirm that it exists.

The flat bottom Hanley's comes in both enamel and metallic also.

I thought there were two flat bottom variations, plus the concave variation? If there are three flat bottom variations, can somebody describe what they are please. Matt

@Matt Menghini

This thread does a good job describing the Fitzgeralds variations.

They are also listed on the composite that I sent to you recently.

Ah, that was very helpful. So on the "permit" variation, the "Tax Paid" wording is in slightly different positions. I had not picked up on that previously.

I discovered that Fitzgerald's variation in typical fashion - an upgrade that turned out to be different. I've upgraded several of the cans since the post at the link Jim provided, and they're now shown in the BCCA online supplement.

I also am without both 3.2% to 7% Bruck's cans currently, if anybody has a spare to trade/sell.
