Utica Club tab question

#1

Post by Rockbob »

OK tab dudes and dudettes, the can on the left has more of a cream coloring, as opposed to the can on the right, which is white. The can on the left is not in the book or the online supplement. Is this a known variation just overlooked?

I have one on the left but thought it was just smoke damaged. Maybe it is a real variation.......

Are they the same can codes? The cream white is often found on paint over cans (see the thread for paint overs) and also the color tolerances used by the can companies. My vote is a different variation. Keep em both.
