last weekend wasn't very productive , checked the lot where I found the howdy cans but only found a couple modern liquor bottles and a broken coca cola bottle from the 70's , didn't find any new areas with cans

the next day checked the woodlot where I found the 7 up can but didn't really find any cans that day . found some bottles poking thru the leaves but all were liquor bottles , glass jars or beer bottles . only soda was part of a broken coca cola from 40's

decided to go back to the main can dump I normally check and see what else was still there .

a couple no deposit bottles , orange juice , glass jars , coca cola cap on a broken end

cans included - coca cola , pepsi , Canada dry , dr pepper ( first one found on that site ) , fresca , 7 up , sprite , Fanta - grape , loblaws - lemon lime , Canada dry low calorie , grand prix - club soda , IGA - diet cola ( never found that one before )

some colour remained on a couple of the iga diet cola , the dr pepper says it was bottled by seven up ? didn't know that did dr pepper early on here . some colour remained on French side of Fanta grape , common can just one I didn't have in garage yet for some reason

The large-diamond Coke can you posted earlier would bring some big bucks if it was clean. (check Epay). Those are circa 1960-64 (here in USA anyway).
I didn't toss those away there in the garage , is a few older coca cola cans in a growing area for them , not exactly sure how I'd clean them more with what I have though

not sure what the cans I found would be worth in the condition there in or if they somehow cleaned up a bit more

cans included - coca cola , pepsi , diet pepsi , 7 up , Fanta - orange , orange crush , fresca , iga - diet ginger ale , Canada dry , wink , grand prix - soda water , cola , carlton club cola , Wilson's - cola .

mysterious orange can , its on the far left second pic , not sure what brand it is , if anyone can id it ? its a flat top so thinking a store brand ?

also went back to camp site woodlot , didn't find much but found 2 flat top cans - a teem and a Tahiti treat ( which is pretty much rusted away ) , the teem was just poking thru some leaves , not sure how I spotted it as a lot of the leaves are yellow and nothing else nearby

however a lot of the original colour remains on the teem , 2 lemons are yellow and 1 faded . still only ever found the teem flat top twice and other can was way more damaged .

poked around some old highway embankments north of where I live , so was the old highway before new highway was built .

found a few things but nothing too exciting

bottles included - pepsi from 70's , broken coca cola , stubby pop , clear NDNR broken , some beer bottles

- 4 metal beer cans rusted and all appear to be Labatt's 50

some aluminum cans , pepsi seemed to be a lot in this area for some reason and a Fanta - tangerine , one pepsi has a just for laugh's festival ( montreal ) on back from july-august 1992 , not sure if this can is from quebec ? or sold in rest of Canada
