I didn't bid on anything in this auction. I did watch though.

Question: How do you ship a $32,000 can? On a lower priced can most just don't insure, or self insure, or maybe buy insurance if the price starts to creep up into the multiple $100 range and beyond. But what do you do @ $32k?

My understanding is USPS will only insure up to $5k. FedEX? UPS?

That's a very good question. I seriously doubt if FedEx or UPS would be willing to insure a beer can for $32,000 but maybe there is a way of getting it done if a person provides something they consider a credible appraisal. Even then, I still doubt it. Many years ago, I made videos. This was back in the analog tape days. One time, I needed to send a master tape over to Detroit to a duplication facility. Because of all the labor put into that master, I tried to insure it for thousands and thousands of dollars. UPS would not do it. To them, it was just a $2 tape. Thankfully, it arrived in Detroit safely.
Focus: Cones and flats from Michigan, South Bend, and Fort Wayne. Foreign cans only if I bought them myself in the country of origin.

I remember the days of private couriers taking computer tapes by planes since they needed to be there over night. For 32K, it should be hand delivered.

How about the Northern Beer Flat Top 103-36 for $292.50? I've got one as good that I'd sell for less.
Wanted: Schmidt City Club OD 130-2, Schmidt Select Desert 130-14, Gluek's 165-7,8 and Grain Belt Ale 166-24,25

Dan always packs his expensive stuff with a box in another box so unless the box goes missing altogether, the can isn’t going to be damaged. The tracking number means it wont get lost, so the risk is minimal. Ive done this a bunch of times...
