Does anyone know how many they made in Philly? The tab book has photos of 8, but lists around 50?

The expert on Esslinger Quizzie cans is Larry Handy, I believe I'll see him this weekend at his Horlacher show. If I can connect with him I'll ask since I would like to know myself.

Don’t know how I just noticed the difference on the bottom. Philadelphia’s Premium vs Premium. I only have one Philly, so I’m assuming they are much tougher.

No known PQ Bock zips at this point. I’d guess that around 50 from Phily is good baseline. All the zip facts match the last PQ striped set 9 & are dated 56’ which leads us to believe they were leftover inventory that were ran thru lines with current tab stock at the time.
