I noticed the Fox Deluxe from Peter Fox is OI... many others out there? Was this the first and only?


Looking for Ben Brew Non IRTP cone and Gambrinus Non IRTP cone.

I think this small can preceded any other 7/8 oz can by quite a few years. But I am far from an expert.

USBC-OI dates both 8 oz. Fox Deluxe cans to 1938, but I suspect that the first one is a little older than that because of the U-Permit number and the "Crown Can Co." text. I believe it was the mid-1950's before another brewery used a can so small.

I got a friend who recently wrote a book on 1930's gangsters & bootleggers & said his grandparents owed a brewery back then. Said they made a 8 oz. flat top in the 30's & it was not Fox Deluxe. When I asked what it was he said I'd have to buy his book to find out. SO, Never did buy the book or find out but was a very Interesting conversation. LEON.
