Hi fellow members! Here's a picture of many of the cans I'd like to have... The many gaps indicate some that you've helped me acquire.

I'm still looking for these. Can anyone help? I have traders. Thanks!

I have a few thousand soda cans and I'm sure there are a few of these in there. Just wondering if it is worth digging. Are this $1 type cans or $20 or? Just wondering how motivated I should be to dig. -mike

Oh, wow! Thank you for bringing these to my attention. I checked 'em out, looks like I have them. I do appreciate your looking. Sometimes, I have found cans that have the same design and appear to be the same, but they are different - aluminum and steel, ridged top and not ridged, etc. Also, some of mine may not be in the best shape, and, I'm always looking for traders. Again, thank you for your interest!

Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe opening them from the top defeats the purpose and I would say that it actuallys decreases the value. You can take a punch and hammer and easily knock a hole,in the bottom instead of trying to use a church key.
Interested in all flat and Cone Soda and Water cans.

I don't think it does. And I drink all these I don't try to sell them. I use my pocket knife and puncture the very bottom of the rim so only air comes out. And then do 1 round with the opener. :smt023

I think willssoda is right about this, it does decrease the value of them.

I know several soda collectors that won't even take cans opened like that, same with beer cans.

To me it doesn't really matter much, if I don't have the can I will take any opened way can, but prefer bottom opened. It just looks better.

You're welcome. For some reason the link didn't work correctly on the first can I was trying to highlight. Let's try it again:
