yes that was my can , what ever became of it ?

I still got it, but with my basement flooding & all the humidity rusting my cans down there I think I got it boxed up somewhere. THANKS, LEON.

When I was digging my last Privy up north a few weeks ago I dug these cans. The 4 cones were Mystery cans. After Cleaning no longer a Mystery. LEON.CanGroupCleaned.jpg

there is some snow here but I managed to get out and re-check one of the locations I found cans at earlier this year , not the main location where I found a lot of the cans but a smaller dump in the woods , mostly late 70's early 80's era stuff

found some cans but had to use the metal detector to find them and dig them out from the snow , which actually wasn't as hard as it sounds , found a hole bag of them

is Diet Coke , pepsi ( rusted away ) , fresca , sprite , Canada dry cream soda , five alive was several with colour , pure sun apple juice , honeydew and several chateau brand cola and a ginger ale but there all pretty far gone .

also found a WD 40 can with full colour ( don't know if anyone would collect that ) and several damaged toy cars ( which are hard to see from the picture ) , 2 had dates on the bottom indicating they were made in the 70's

I briefly attempted to clean a few of the better ones , can see the five alive had a lot of colour , pure sun apple juice mostly faded away , honeydew ( which has 1 nice side , other half faded ) , fresca , diet coke , sprite , chateau cola and ginger ale , think chateau was a store brand but not sure for what store

very intrigued by the honeydew can , never seen or heard of that one before , search online brings up a can posted to the can site which I posted , , which looks similar and was from 70's and for sale in Canada but does not say who bottled it , which is odd as normally companies mark there cans . don't see anything similar for sale currently , which sucks as I'd be curious to try one , orange drink with honey sounds appealing

went back to the main location and found more cans , for a small dumping in the bush , have found a lot of stuff there much more than I realised was there .

more pepsi , coca cola , Schweppes tonic water , Canada dry , mountain dew , orange crush and lots of grand prix " soda water "

some of the cans had a lot of colour left , can see a contest on the mountain dew cans " play buckshots " , grand prix soda waters cans are a blueish colour , lots of orange on the orange crush and yellow on the tonic water

I like those Mountain Dews & Pepsi's you guy got in Canada, not like the USA Versions. LEON.

looking online I noticed a near mint unopened mountain dew can pretty much identical to the 3 I found earlier this week sold for $90 Canadian , didn't think it would be worth that much although the condition of the one online is near mint when compared to the dug cans I found

also noticed another flavour of Grand Prix I have yet to find , saw a picture online of a lemon lime can , found 4 flavours of grand prix so far ( grape , tonic water , club soda and ginger ale )
