One Can, 3 Labels -Just About Covers The Whole Country

#1

Post by JustJoe »

Maybe I'm overthinking this but it's pretty cool (in my mind anyways) ! Uncovered a Canadian Ace Ale under a Duquesne Bavarian tab, as I was working on it noticed the silver in the Canadian Ace was enamel, so i did a test spot and sure enough there was another label under that. There sits this Diet Shasta Root Beer. I'm like sweet, now I get to use my new Soda Can Reference book ! This label only came in a flat top and (circa 1964), which in itself is pretty cool ! That got me thinking. I wounder how long they might have used that label and where it might be from ? So I send Super Soda Can man Dave T. a PM. He said the latest they probably used that label was 66-67 and more than likely west coast. So here is how it looks to me. We have an East coast label- Bavarian, Pittsburgh, PA. A Midwestern label - Canadian Ace, Chicago, IL. and a Shasta - West coast label ! Now the Bavarian (correct me if I'm wrong) is from about 1972 - 74 ? That means this sheet sat on the canning company floor for 6 plus years before it went out the door !

I really like how you leave clean separation between the different labels. Very impressive.

Hmm..... now you've got me wondering. Took a break from the Tab I've been working on and did a test spot on a Duquesne that had 2 different can codes. I wonder if there's a Shasta under it. I know it's a diet soda of some sort.

Fun stuff... I guess particular can plants supplied vast regions of the country, especially as they consolidated and disappeared over the years so this coast-to-coast mash-up could happen. Speaking of mash-ups, what's the funniest combination anyone has seen? Like a Jax under a Valley Forge, or a Lone Star under a North Star (RIP, Minnesota North Stars).

I'm also curious as to the can code and which plant/city had the sheet those "cans" came from.

Dear Friends

Here's an example of a common can- Schell's Export- with two different canning numbers on the seam. The number 77 down low and 460 up higher. What's underneath? I don't know yet,

How do you get such a clean straight line between the labels?

Too bad there's no codes on your can, other than the union logo. Might be Continental. This pic of the Duquesne I have in the queue, you can see the 83 looks to be hand written.

This was the only thing that resembled a canning code.
Right above the Union mark .
