on the weekend I decided to check an area I had first found last fall as its a lot easier to see things now without leaves and bugs .

in terms on bottle finds , found a couple no deposit pepsi's and a pop shoppe bottle but nothing old , found a couple sites where things had been tossed into the woods but just broken glass jars and junk


did find one spot where there was a small concentration on metal pop cans , to save time I just threw them all in my bag to sort thru once I got home , what was worth trying to clean or just toss out .

several different brands , mostly coca cola and diet coke , also a diet sprite , pepsi , dr pepper , orange crush and a really rusty Fresca you can barely see ( between the crush and diet coke )

I don't think there that old , don't really find a lot of older Dr pepper cans or bottles here , not a common find up north . the orange crush has nearly full colour

I hear that bud. I did get myself an older 1960 Orange Crush yesterday. I’m still sore after digging for 11 hours

a few days ago found this can , think it might be a lot older but in really bad shape , for America Dry ginger ale , a brand I rarely or never found before around this area but I think it was sold in Canada

Cool can. I just looked in Dave Tanners book and it should be the 1958-1959 can I think.

I think these cans are from the late 70's or early 80's , before they switched over to aluminum here

its definitely old as they can to manually open it with a can opener , not a lot left though , just the one side where you can read " America dry "

Here is a church key opening can like your caking manually open. That I dug and cleaned this year.
Your can will clean up.
Some quick items you can pick up locally should be called Bar keeper, wood bleach or Citric acid. Oxalic I have to order.
Give it a try and check out the Rusty Bunch forum for great can cleaning advise
