Unlisted 1960’s Colt 45 from Detroit

#1

Post by Pbama » Mon Jul 08, 2019 6:04 pm

Just put the below super clean Colt 45 out an eBay for a high price as I’m not sure that I really want to let it go. It’s a 1960’s Malt Liquor brewed in Detroit (1 city). It’s a Fan tab and the BCCA book only has as a Zip tab. Any thoughts?

@Pbama Paul other than the fan tab it pretty much looks like USBC Vol II 56-24

Agreed. Curious if any of the many RB Detroit can fanatics/collectors have seen this can in a Fan tab. Figure that if it’s not noted as anything other than a Zip in the book then it is probably not seen that often; if at all?

I got it, I got a bunch of different Colt 45's. BUT, They are all boxed up since my basement keeps flooding. Don't know where they are. But here's some pics saved on my computer. As far as I know it's a common $5.00 can. LEON.

Leon is all over it. Not that tough a can and was just over looked. Your can is a variation of mine. I have 056 canning code and your can had 56-A. $5 - $10 can at best.

Here’s mine. Also a matching Stout ML.

I agree with Leon and Chuck. That said still took me a long time to acquire either in fan tab.

"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!

I just found a vanity lid variation to go with my earlier can (thanks Dave Wheaton!)
