    Junk you've found on a job....

    Hey guys-

    Figured it was time for my quarterly "chime in" to see if any of you have come across ancient soda/beer cans or bottles.Since the old work crews had a habit of dropping them where the boss wouldn't find them,I've put some nice ones on my shelves because of you.

    Anyhow-have you ever stumbled across a pile of old tin or bottles?

    If so..."I'm your huckleberry"

    My best find was a 1/2 dozen old Budweisers. Still in great shape. Heres a picture.

    The lable is funny, lemme see if I can find one here at work. Naw, but from memory it says stuff like "Unsurps the convalescent" "Great for nursing mothers!"
    "Aids Digestion" Pretty cool thing. When I was looking here at the shop I found a deviled ham can with a soldered on lid, and a scary assed devil on it. Also a pork and beans can from like the 1920's.

    I have an old 6oz Coke-a-cola bottle that has "Des Moines, IA" molded in the glass on the bottom.
