Some Tough Tabs!!!

#1

Post by Pbama » Sun Oct 06, 2019 9:48 pm

Just picked up the below collection of tab tops with some very tough variations. Not as good as Bjorn’s but not too bad. It was very strange that the guy had doubles of almost every can! I asked him why and he really didn’t have a good answer other than that he never threw anything away. I left all the aluminum with him, except a few odd Mass ones, and just took the SS. All cans will be available with exception of some of the New England upgrades so feel free to send me a PM with fair offer if interested in anything before they go to eBay. Any thoughts on the toughest? The Dart from Bavarian in Reading PA, the Holihan's from Mass, Grand Union from Champale in VA, Old Style from Newport KY, 7 Eleven from Lexington Brewery in NJ, Gamecock Cream Ale and the Matt’s lime green seem to stand out. Also, pretty cool 4 cent Mobile AL tax sticker on the Jax can.Thanks!

Dart Drug from Bavarian is a sleeper. One sold for over $200 a while back. Grand Union picture frame is a decent can. Old Style is a sleeper, but it's an Old Style, so,... Gamecock Ale, Matts, Narragansett Ale, Hedricks, Krueger Ale, Krueger beer, and Hanley Pilsner are a few standouts.

@Pbama Yes @oldmoneytexan ...great sleepers. I have been lucky enough to have the Dart Drug from Bavarian in both a wide seam and glued seam version....

Be careful out there when you "leave the aluminum behind".........could be more killer stuff in aluminum than SS cans.

I spin some that I’m aware of like Red, White & Blue from Texas but most of it was your typical Narry bicentennial, Billy beer and JR crap. Let me know if anything that I might not be aware of and I can follow-up and keep an eye out for going forward. Thx!
