NJ Sleeper Tabs

#1

Post by baartz »

Dear Friends,

I recently acquired some India "Puerto Rico" cans from NJ. I compared them and have at least 3 variations. I have been seeking clean examples of these cans for several years. There is 78-21 without "Puerto Rico" on the side that says "La Cerveza - Beer" under the ovals and has a shorter mandatory. The one I have has dark blue ovals. There are two "Puerto Rico" cans, both say "La Cerveza de Puerto Rico" under the ovals and have a longer Mandatory with an alcohol content statement. One is dark blue and he other is light blue.

Does the US version (Non Puerto Rico) also come in a light blue variation?

I have had difficulty finding these cans in any variation clean. I think they are way under-rated in the USBC vol, 2, what say you?

Cool. I did not realize there was a light blue version. I will need to look out for one.
