A rust too much

#1

Post by bantam10 » Sat Sep 07, 2019 7:57 pm

Beautiful day out in the woods.!
I first started checking a dirt road that ran along a large creek and found several pull offs. First one didn’t have any pits, but who needs to bury trash when there is a large runoff right off the side of the road! There were tons of various cans from the 50’s -80’s thrown down here. I kept about a 1/2 dozen cans, mostly mystery’s from here and I was only 25 minutes into the day.
Next spot that had cans was another road that ended at a creek. Except the last 30ft was closed to vehicle traffic so I had to walk. This place was absolutely littered with cans, but none were buried. Johnny pfeiffer, pfeiffer teardrops, Drewrys character were a few I seen. I didn’t keep a single can from here though.
Next spot was like the same, but this place had several foundations and lots of broken 20’s glass behind the foundations on the hill. Absolutely zero trace of any beer cans/bottles here.
Last spot of the day was the killer. Dead end at a river that was at least a good 400ft above the river. Took me about 20 minutes to find anything, then things took off quick. First pit had a glass pained label outboard oil bottle in it which was probably from the 40’s. No cans yet... 4 more dry pits and I finally find some pfeiffer teardrops. Good. Found a couple surface flats, and then it was hit after hit. Opened up the next pit with a bottom opened schlitz zip, with strohs and Drewrys flats. Typical stuff, but I quickly realized that some of the strohs were the elusive 2 sided flat tops. Very nasty tough can to find! And I’m digging a pit full of them! Also my 3rd time finding them, can’t believe my luck.
Long story short, I dug probably 10-12 pits. Everything from post war cones to zip tops. By far the most productive area that I’ve ever pit dumped. I was overwhelmed and I need to revisit the area. For sure.
Got some cans cleaning. Sorry to pre cleaned pyramid.

Nice score, still in the 90s here and the chiggers and ticks are terrible. Soon enough.

Another cool story with good finds. Let us know on the mysteries! Still trying to figure out the river that's 400 feet above a river though. ;)
I'm constantly finding good cans... in my mailbox. *** My third year of waging Schlitzkrieg on the Flint Hills of Kansas ***

Gold split label bud
White split label bud
Fox deluxe GR post war oval can

Blatz Milwaukee flat 1 sided can.
The blatz is the only one still soaking

I finally got what you meant by split label. The wife and I call those
Gold Bud Lager
White Bud Lager.
I never knew y’all called them “split labels”.

Cleaned cans. The top 2 strohs are the standard 1 sided flat.
- keeping the best 2 sided strohs. I already have one, I just like to keep a second one.
-blatz Milwaukee is a much needed upgrade
- Diet cola is also an upgrade
-Diet Orange is a new can for the wall
- pfeiffer tear drop is the Great Lakes country variation. I’ve been looking for one forever. To the wall it goes.
-black label is from Cleveland
- Johnny Pfeiffer is IRTP and will be trashed.

Thanks for the replies everyone.
Some of the strohs from that pit were 1 sided as well. They even had the same seam as the 2 sided cans.
Here the 3 I saved.

Yes, but In Rust We Trust too. Glad to see you're out hunting and finding stuff. The Gayla Diet Cola can is cool and in great shape. Love how you show the scenery too of where you are and not just the dump shots.
Thanks. Dave

Thanks Dave. The scenery pictures show more of the story and kind of shows what the people who drank these cans were looking at and experiencing.
