Kansas cans found by Steve Gordon
Steve is a member of the BCCA and an OFFICER of The Rusty Bunch Chapter.
I received a letter from an antique/estate dealer from Kansas. She somehow found out that I was a can collector(I think it was from a book in her library). She had listed the cans she had,and even had asking prices next to each can(like$2.00/ea. for the Storz cans). I called her immediatley and agreed on total price. I paid 1/2 of the money and she shipped the cans to me.
The cans were delivered early one morning. I was running late for work and only got a chance to open 1 of the boxes. It was a Muehlbach box. I wiped the dust off a can or 2 and couldn't believe the condition!!!
I wanted to call-in-sick, but just couldn't do it that day. I had to wait all day at work and just dream about the other cans. Of course I could't concentrate on work, but managed to make it through the day and home safely. When I got home I tore into those cans like a fly-on-sh**! And the rest is history. Needless to say, I was not upset sending the woman the other 1/2 payment when I got the cans!!
