I found a modern ( from 2019-20 ) Genesee beer can the other day , it was off a back country road in some trees , I had never seen one before said it was from Rochester NY , don't think its sold here

most rusty cans will clean up somewhat but getting tougher each year as they've been outdoors longer and more damaged

I was hoping for a piece bigger then 1/4 inch by 1/4 inch. All I see is a possible letter P. I'll go out on a limb a suspect it could be a Old Topper. LEON.

Well I finished the rest of the upstate NY dump on my grandparents property, and I'm pretty happy with the results, especially since I thought there was nothing really left since last time. I have some odd ones that I have no idea what the story behind them is.

Milk bottle (base embossed Canfield Supply Company), Newer etched made in germany wine?, (Ghost Acl) Mountain Side Keffir Cream jar (Lexington, Ny?), odd food bottle, and a Genesee Can.

From top left to right: Johnson's Car-Nu, Veedol Motor Oil, and a Sunsweet Prune Juice.
From bottom left to right:
Sunoco Motor Oil (Back missing, just kept it for display), Veedol Motor Oil, Sinclair (?) Oil Can, Krueger Cream Ale can and the Genesee Can before cleaning.

Sending those along with the ones from last time to my buddy for cleaning, will post what they look like when they get back:

I thought I might be able to find something about your Chelsea China bowl, but I couldn't find that mark at all. I wonder if it is imitation...

I had the same issues. It is kinda odd.
