905 flat top variations

#1

Here are the brewery variations on the 905 red/white/blue flat tops. I finally found the last of them that I needed in a dollar box yesterday at Swap-Yo-Mama. There are a couple tough sleepers in here. Starting with the upper left...

#1 top left: 905 Brewing on one line from SOUTH BEND. This is a pretty tough sleeper can.
#2 top right: 905 Brewing on one line from Chicago. Common as dirt.
#3 and #4 bottom left and bottom center: Drewrys South Bend on two lines. Common. There are two minor variations as shown. One is by Continental the other is by National. Both are fairly common in my opinion.
#5 bottom right: Drewrys CHICAGO on two lines. VERY tough can, toughest of all of them. Finally got one yesterday.

There are 2 different of those 2-line Drewrys/905 Chicagos..... one had "Distributed" spelled out and the other just says "DIST". Took me forever to find both.

I have an extra of the "DIST" variation....
