Canning Company Logos

#1

Post by MI-Cans » Tue Feb 11, 2020 7:29 pm

I don’t have all the canning company logos memorized so I made up a reference sheet for my own use while inventorying my collection. Would appreciate any corrections or additions. There are a couple of unknown ones.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

and I believe at least Kegs Cans on some west coast flats. Page 18 of USBC II also has some other codes.

@MI-Cans Many are also on page #18 of USBC 2 but I'm sure you already knew that...

I believe Unknown number 02 is American National from this trademark registration from Nevada. Interestingly, It also notes here that they have zero trademarks still active and the last one filed was in 1999....Unknown number 02.
https://trademarks.corporationwiki.com/ ... 141336226/

This link shows that Rexam and American National are basically the same company as well in their filings and shows the progression of American National trademarks.
https://www.corporationwiki.com/p/2c5bq ... an-company

I believe also that unknown number 05 is Kaiser Aluminum.

Cool site...I will have to do some more looking around at other can companies on it and it might answer some of my can company timeline questions.

I believe that unknown No. 3 is actually a labor union logo rather than a can co. logo. It's too small for me to tell whether it is the union representing the brewery workers or, the can manufacturing company's employee's union. Iron City cans quite often had a "union bug" along with a can manufacturer logo on them

Sorry for not responding sooner. (I’m cutting back on time spent on the computer.)

I appreciate the assistance and inputs. The image in the first post has been updated accordingly. The original image was based just on cans in my collection. That will no longer be the case given the additional suggestions that have been posted and images added.

Regarding the Unkowns…
#01 – This is a Bulldog Malt Liquor. The symbol is a letter “c” on top of a letter ”u”. Maybe a west coaster might recognize it and chime in.
#02 – Was ID’d as American-National.
#03 +#04 – These are both newer Iron City cans if that helps. ( @Ted Wolfe - I agree that could be a Union Logo )
#05 – If Eric can be certain, then I’ll identify it as a Kaiser logo.

The logos are easier to see without the cans so I originally tried to collect “can-less” logos but was only able to track these (image below) down. That's only 10 out of the 34 in the image in the first post. If anyone has any that I can add, please post them here.

Thanks again…

JEFFCO Metal Container was located in Jefferson County Colorado, which locals refer to as "Jeffco". I believe it was later purchased by Ball container when Coors started making their own cans.

@Longopener

Chris, thanks for that addition. I don't have any of those cans. Never knew that logo existed. Anybody have a clue as to what it might stand for?

I did some pretty extensive trademark searches on TESS (Trademark Electronic Search System on the government patent and trademark site) and some state trademark sites but found nothing to support that the K on unknown 05 is Kaiser aluminum. It is one of those things for some reason I have just "always known" and it makes since, considering the mark was only on Olympia cans and that Kaiser Aluminums main aluminum production facilities were all based in the PacNW, due to the cheap electricity from the Bonneville Power Administration that is required to smelt the aluminum Bauxite.
I will keep looking into can company trademarks....it is actually helping me date some cans. Post any info when I get it.
