found is sprite can the other day ( also found a couple others but this one had most colour on 1 side ) , don't recall finding this version/design before . at least not one with colour .

it was used sometime in the mid to late 60's , this can is the pull top version

" sprite " is an odd red / greenish colour , says " its natural " and green "ss" on bottom , contents 10 fl oz

have some other sprite cans from 70's > 80's > 90's in the garage , might try and photograph some of them too

I like the graphics on that 60s sprite, never seen that one before either. My favourite cans are always the ones with graphics that are very clearly of a certain era.

pretty sure I've never found the " its a natural " sprite can before , it does look a lot different than other sprite cans and doesn't have the appearance of a recent soda can

Nice can. Some of the earlier ones remind me of 7-Up in (color scheme, bubbles, red dot, etc.)
