found this the other day in the woods near a spot where i normally go swimming , somehow never saw it before . but been there a long time and rusted .

tried to clean it a bit , can see the word " pepsi " started to appear and some blue / red on other side . i'm assuming this can is from the early 60's as its flat top , fairly early pepsi can , have found some others before , do come across them every now and then

Wonder what size that is. in Canada they come in 3 different sizes. 10 oz, & rarer 11.5 oz. & even rarer 15.5 oz. Leon.

That is a 10oz can or 284ml. The 11.5 oz was on exported beer but equates to 12oz (Imperial 341ml) in Canada (Imperial) I've not seen a Canadian 15.5oz?
The other weird thing is I have a Choc-Ola can 9.5 oz us but it must have been for export as well because it shows 281ml?...I assume it's to get close to the Canadian 10oz of 284ml. The can is the same diameter and height of a regular US 10oz.

No 15oz...and no 11.5....the only 11.5 is Canadian beer, but that's still 12 imperial ozs here in Canada.
