Ok....so my initial search was focused on "no opener needed" and zip-top. I stayed within 1963 but spread my search of key words such as "snap tab (this however seemed to be mainly associated with dress shirts)", "self-opening", "easy open (this seems to be the most used term for soft top punch tops....expect a follow-on thread), "flip-top", "pop-top" and "pull-top". These were a direct result of those 1963 ads.

These are Jan - June 1963

The Krueger Cream Ale zip top can shown in the ad is unknown, and I suspect it wasn't made. Any of you RI specialists have it?

@kruegerbock Al good eye.....I was hoping somebody would catch that. That was the only ad I found with that can. The next ones I believe were all beer......

2,120,064 Iron City cans in 20 days. That is a lot of cans. That puts into perspective how few cans actually survived.

So does this mean there may be some rare Duquesne zip tops that show the "snap-open" logo on the cans?, also the USBC II 60-32 (both the book and the supplement list) show this can as a tab and not a zip, every one I've seen or owned has been a zip, was there ever a tab version of this can?[/attachment]
