ADD YOUR VANITY LIDS HERE

Post by MI-Cans »

What I posted is not a finite list. There are more out there.

If you go through the list(s) and have one not there, please feel free to post an image of it in this thread.

Take a picture of the lid head on. Don't need to see the sides of the can. With the picture, add the brand name of the can that the lid was on.

Thank you for making this the best website in the Hobby!!

They must have been getting rid of what was laying around. This is on a 12 oz. Ballantine can, from Falstaff Brewing Corporation, but is has "WEST VIRGINIA TAX PAID 16 OUNCES".

Seems to me that I've seen another can with this lid in the whole General/Falstaff/Pearl/whatever other brewery caught up in that late 70's/early 80's dumpster fire.

This is on a Falstaff post-Bicentennial can, with a General Brewing call out on the side of the can and Brewed by Pearl lid. Unfortunately this can didn't fare that well in storage.

The Stegmeier/Iroquois in FL is pretty unusual. :smt023 I can't add anything here about tax stamps that I haven't already posted but the Dakota is one I'd like to have. Always liked that can, especially if it's as clean as the examples shown. 5% was a strong beer back in the day, at least for those of us down south.

This has been interesting because I see the pull tabs have the stamp under the tab, so that tax stamp was there before the tab. Did not know that. I primarily collect flats so I see now it was a process. Good stuff.

The Falstaff cans from the bicentennial year had USA where this one says lager. Looks to be one of those cans from the late 80's - early 90's where they tried to mix steel and aluminum to make sheets to cut costs. Not trying to be negative. As someone who scrapped a lot back in that era, it doesn't look like a drawn steel. A lot of manufacturers did that back then to cut costs but it was a odd choice to mix aluminum with steel. It actually ended with a lot of cans that weren't recycled and were tossed. The scrappers actually had magnets to pull those cans out because steel brought about 10% what aluminum did. Good thread. Always something to learn here.

A bunch of bulk lots of these came up recently on eBay.

I'm unsure if they were ever actually used. I have never seen the Fehr's Florida lid on a can.
