Today we have 639 lots of cans and trays that are less expensive due to rarity/lack of collecting interest, or scarce items made less desirable due to condition. Because this is an Inventory Reduction Sale, every lot starts at just $1. There is no excuse not to bid.

This month we have some fine breweriana up for bid, from the 1960s all the way back to the pre-prohibition era.

Here's something different, a little-appreciated corner of the breweriana hobby: Bottles. The majority of today's offerings are the much collected Steinie and Stubby bottles from the 1930s-1960s, and the Handy or "Glass Can" bottles from the 1950s-1980s. All fit nicely on your existing can shelves.
These are the "Other Cans" - a rag-tag band of dumpers, reunion cans, Can company cans, mock-ups, test cans, banks, and error cans. Nothing great, but they're all good. Actually, we have some pretty nice items in this auction as well. All-in-all a bunch of unique stuff - that won't break the bank.
