A collection of beer cans (and soda cans and bottles) that has not been touched in 4 decades. Including steel cans and aluminum cans and ranging from opened cans (tabs open on top) to punctured cans (holes on bottom) to sealed cans (never opened or filled) to mint cans that are boxed from the factory, sealed and never opened (nor filled). This last bunch of cans comes with an interesting history. According to my father, these cans were made for the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow but never went into distribution or circulation due to the boycott imposed by the United States. They are in factory packaging from the Continental Can Company to show and to protect the cans.

Some of the other cans that are sealed (never opened, never filled) include Heineken, Carlsberg, Tuborg, and Old Chicago. Also sealed is a series of Coca Cola cans with the name "Coca Cola" in English down one side and the same name in other languages down the other side and marked for the 1980 Olympics.

One Piels can appears to be a misprint from the factory - it looks like the can was in motion when paint (ie graphics) was applied.

One Steelers can from Iron City Brewing in celebration of the Steelers 1980 championship team.

Some not all pictured here. More photos can be seen at the following links on dropbox: (continental cans) (steelers can) (other cans) (bottles)
