Side Collection Has Grown

#1

Post by MI-Cans » Thu Mar 21, 2019 9:00 am

Having added some small cans since December, I took time to make adjustments to my makeshift camera box and re-took images of the smalls for a more uniform look. Again, nothing earth-shattering, but keeps interest up when unable to look for 12oz'ers. Helps to keep the fun in the Hobby!

Removed "Silly" from title as suggested in latter posts. Now considered a legitimate collecting niche for me. 04-14-2019

I have that Coy in 12oz. It's my only aluminum can. Have had it since my dad bought it for me at a show in the 70s. I didn't appreciate it until later in life and even more since his passing. Didn't even know the little one existed.😎

I love those small cans! Even been buying the current little soda cans recently. Makes the trip to the grocery store a little more fun!

You are too kind. I would have told him he could not have the really great can until he renewed. :razz:

The 10 ounce Coy exists because the guy behind the brand was a local beer distributor named Neal Kaye, and he started Coy by putting Pearl Ale into his cans (contract brewed through Pearl). Coy was a big hit in the area and he started getting it distributed more regionally. Coy had a lot more full-bodied taste than most beers of its era, and people liked it. This is all before the craft brewers started up. The brand grew in popularity to where Coy decided to try going national with it- which is where the various "cask" cans came from. At this time, he bought the Dixie Brewery- in fact, he saved them from closing their doors! This is when the 10 ounce cans came out. Coy also tried branching out into other things- there was a Coy contract brewed in Canada, a light, and a malt liquor. Light is moderately tough, the Rhino Malt Liquor is rather tough to find. Anyway, Kaye had bitten off more than he could chew with the myriad of ongoing financial problems at the old Dixie Brewery. He sold the brewery, and I think he also lost his distributorship around this time. There are a couple of articles about Kaye from the 80's on Google if you search "Neal Kaye Coy Beer" Interesting stuff.

To draw this back into the thread, the Coy 10 ounce and the two Dixie 10 ounces (beer and light) were not marketed for very long, and are decent cans to find. If I have a couple of them at Canvention, I can usually find homes for them.

Are you seriously chasing the ten ounce cans or more the 7's and 8's? I have a lot of 80's 10 ounce cans, some 90's, some 70's, some rust, to trade or for sale or whatever if you're interested.

@sgramling
I actually have a reasonable offer on a Storzette but it has an incorrect lid. I want to check with Art for availability and cost involved to correct it. The person making the offer is gracious enough to hold them for me until I’m ready to pull the trigger on something in his offer.

@Dixie Dave
I’m not focused on any given size. If it’s a brand not displayed in my picture, I’d be interested. If it is a brand in my picture, is it noticeably different somehow? My niche is variety and that’s why there’s no real focus on size or brand.

@Summitcan
Thanks for the pic. I thought that's what it was when I last saw one online.

@Leon
I have no objections to rust. Many of my older cans have that feature (making them more affordable to me). PM me with a list or picture of what you think you have available and how much you want for it. We'll work something out. Thanks.

Total small cans (7oz, 8oz & 10oz) now up to 82 and each one is different.

@Baxter
A huge thanks to Baxter. I got my first small can(s) from him so I have to blame him for this quest. And I have to thank him for taking time out during his Spring Thaw visit to search for small cans for me. Thanks, Ray.

@Leon
If you enlarge the image, you'll see that there's rust. They're not all shiny or in mint condition. Waiting to see what you might have available.

After getting cans from Leon and going to the Stroh's Wyandotte show, I wanted to update the image of my small can collection as it stands now with 89 cans. Thanks for looking.
