Fehr’s-Common and overlooked or obscure?

#1

Post by DURTBAGG » Wed Oct 09, 2019 10:52 pm

So is this Fehr’s can from Cincinnati obscure or simply a common but often overlooked brewery variation?

My guess is the latter

It’s not in the USBC that I can see although I expect it is in the supplement.

Durtbagg; that Fehr's Draft Brewed can is from Cincinnati so definitely a pulltab. Leon your memory is like a Steel Trap finding that old post, since then I have seen about 3/4 others. My belief is the can is obscure but not very desireable so value is small. An Ohio or tab collector will probably have some interest if available. :smt024

I remember talking about that can in here before so I knew there was a old post on it. Notice I commented on the old post. I got a photographic memory but it only works part time. LEON.

Thanks guys, but still unclear. Barfly says it’s definitely a pull tab but it’s pictured in the supplement as a flat?

I think it comes both ways. LEON.

@DURTBAGG
@Leon

Mr. Photographic Memory (Part-time) is absolutely correct. It is can #2 064 17 5. Both versions are new in each Supplement. Here's the tab version:

Yeah, it fits my collection so I'd look for both the flat and the tab.

I think I have the tab. Will have to check when i get home.

The one I have has what appears to be a new top (maybe not) but I can’t see any evidence that it has been relidded. No gear marks, correct height, etc. If this can really comes as a flat, it definitely fits my collection, if only comes as a tab it’s got to go.

Not sure of the significance of the name or date on the bottom unless former collector and when acquired

See all pics and please offer opinions

You need to read my posts above. It DEFINITELY comes both ways.

The Flat version is a new addition to the Volume I Supplement (that's why the number ends in a 5). The Tab version is a new addition to the Volume II Supplement (that's why the number also ends in a 5).

If you look at all the Fehr's cans from both volumes The Flat is the only one listed from Cincinnati while all the Tabs only came from Cincinnati.

The name on the bottom is a collector (that contributed to the second BCCA newsletter). Found it in the BMV. Attached for your benefit or denial. He was BCCA #8, if that holds any significance for you.

I love seeing some of the original collector's names on cans like that. Adds to the history.

Thanks MI CANS. Looks like it’s staying on my shelf as a legit flat!

It probably looks different in hand but is that another label peaking through?

Hey Pinnacle
Yeah I looked at this area under bright lighting after you pointed it out-good eye! It is a very small area of what I will call “moisture rust” and includes a couple of small scratches in the middle. In the pic I can see why it looks like it could be another label coming thru, but as you said, it definitely looks different in hand.
