Paul Bunyan's

#1

Post by mrlager428 » Sat Nov 24, 2018 8:48 am

I have these 3cPaul Bunyans and I noticed the Can on the left is a off white instead of the bright white of the other 2...Also Paul's Skin tone is lighter than thevotherc2 as well.....The Can in question is from National and the other 2 are Continental.....Is this just a Canning Company variance?.....It's hard to tell the off white color with the flash but in regular light it is noticeable.

I remember talking to somebody about this once (or maybe it was a post on this site?). I think we concluded it was just can company variances and even variances between print runs. There are definitely many differences between these cans but I think we concluded they were not purposeful changes.
Focus: Cones and flats from Michigan, South Bend, and Fort Wayne. Foreign cans only if I bought them myself in the country of origin.
