Waldorf lagers

Here’s better pictures of my Waldorfs.
Any lilek experts out there? And What is a fair price to list them at? All are solid.

Lilek 854. R7 in dumper condition. That's the first version of that can. Lilek shows 4 variations of the long opener. Probably $25- $40 depending on condition. Nice find!

Congrats on a great haul Ted!
When you’re ready to sell, I’d like a shot at the middle one on the bottom row if not already spoken for

Ted,

What a great find! The 1935 Waldorf cans are quite difficult to find. The Lager is R-10/R-7 in USBC-OI. It's difficult to put a value on these because this variation turns up so infrequently and because two of the later variations are fairly common. I picked up a dumper of the Ale almost 20 years ago when Charlie Bacon dug them, but I never saw a Beer available until a grade 2/2+ indoor example hit eBay about three years ago. I bid over $400 on it and lost. I bought the pair from Gene's collection a few months later without realizing both were the Lilek actuals.

I'm not quite sure how to value these, but I think the price range quoted above would be more appropriate for the more common variations.

This one is definitely Lilek 854 and not 854A. The wording on the panel to the left of label/right of seam confirms that. In the original book there were "12 or so surviving examples … in generally poor condition." The number you've found here would actually be enough to bump this one down to an R-6 instead of R-7. Still a very tough variation, much more difficult than the later ones with writing in the stripe between the opener and instructions. And they cleaned up pretty darn well too. Very nice find my friend!

Yeah, the "In Keglined Cans" statement was used briefly in late 1935. Too bad it didn't appear on the front of the Waldorfs.

Here's a photo of the lids on mine. I haven't seen this statement on any other can.

Bantam ( spell check changed you to Batman!), don't blow them out....you worked hard to find them...enjoy the stack of them for awhile. Ask yourself, if someone gave $40 to go out and dig one more, could you? Probably not....trade them for something equally cool is probably your best bet....

Maybe not you oldest, If the Milwaukee Clubs & Dortmunder Berghoff cones are FB/IR They could of been bought on the same day as these Waldorfs, Or possibly a Month before or a Month after but certainly a pretty similar or close date range. LEON.
