    I can't get over Hemi's glass beer sign. Just killer.

    Anyway, i found this in a dump way back when I had just started collecting as a teenager. It measures about 6" h x 8" w and appears to be made of either brass or bronze.

    hemihampton, here's a sign like the one you dug, but a different brand. If you get the BCCA magazine, maybe you already saw it.

    Here's part of the article. The Luxus Beer began in 1906, which may help date your sign.

    Yeah, That sign does look alot like mine. I got the 2 small holes at top corner also. I do get the BCCA Magazine since I'm a member. But don't remember seeing that, unless that's a brand new addition I have not received yet. If so when did you get yours copy? THANKS, LEON.

    Gold rush era. I've seen these before but never thought I'd bump into one. Just out of the ground 3 days ago. Big Smiles.
