Hi Leon, is this beer can any good?

Depends on the Criteria. It's a good can but for rarity it's pretty common. Book Price is $125 but that's for a nice clean indoor mint can. Tarnishing & Humidity/ Moisture spots on the gold & other defects would bring the price way down. As the saying goes condition is everything. If Interested in selling let me know?

The show was outside of Lancaster PA. I got there early and nobody else was looking at them. I went back later in the day and some of the other boxes were still there. Today was the last day of the show and I think he didn't want to take them home again.
That explanation makes total sense, I've done the same thing at flea markets when I just wanted to get rid of stuff. Though the stuff I just wanted to get rid of wasn't as nice as what you were pulling out of that box!

You should of bought it, depending on what the price was. What would you call a reasonable Price?
