Looked up a number of 1880s era ice cream cans on Ebay. If he slapped a label on those cans I think its gotta count. I think it would count without a label but say you managed to find one you might not know it was a beer can..hmmm
Looking for Apache Ale & Beer stuff, esp labels and glasses- after other Native American themed brands too

I have a 100 year old gallon can from Henry Weinhard's Brewing Company (Portland, OR) but unfortunately it is marshmallow sauce. :lol:
