What's It Called?

#1

Post by rusteditor » Tue Jan 01, 2019 6:26 pm

Please forgive me if this has been discussed before, but with the DGR update I'm trying to classify the type of cone like the Heileman's Old Style 177-13. Apparently it is not unique as the Supplement now includes an ABC (designated as 150-00) with the same type of cone. So what is it called? Does it have a designation? I was thinking SP (squat profile) or MP (minimum profile). Thoughts?

Thanks in advance for any information and suggestions. And as a reminder, I am still seeking input for the DGR update.

No pro
"Still looking for 2 specific examples of the following cans I traded away years ago.
Berghoff LP cone: indoor with rusted seam and slight touchup on white stripe in upper right of label. Also a copper colored Drewrys "Taurus/Gemini" scene; indoor with yellow smoke damage and top lid half cut out.

Will trade a better examples, other cans or buy from you!

Any pictures available so the unknowing visual masses can see what you are talking about?
Thanks

That looks like a modified version of the can prototype Smoller posted in the members section. I vote no profile.

Good eye Scott. While the Smoller's prototype is KEGLINED and has a 5-toothed seam, these are by Continental so perhaps American Can Co. thought this idea had merit.

I looked up the 2 cans above in the USBC Supplement page of the BCCA website and both are identical to common LP variations ( right down to the seams and can code information of their respective LP counterparts.)
The ABC is: C. C. CO. 32 PAT. APPL'D FOR

The Heileman's is: C. C. CO. 4-11-B PAT. APPL'D FOR (no IRTP on the can but we know the sheets were used with standard LP cones after the FBIR too)

I always wondered about that Old Style in the book, how tough is it? I have never seen one for sale anywhere.
