Luckily he noticed the Budweiser lid and didn't open it. He put the 2 pin holes on the top rim to remove the soda to help preserve the can. Apparently the canner accidentally dropped some Budweiser lids in with the Coke cans. They caught it right away and thought they had collected and destroyed all that had been mistakenly combined.But this one obviously got away! As you can see it's in near perfect condition as my grandfather kept it in a safe place before leavingt it to me. My collection is small and this item deserves to be part of a much more elaborate collection. It may be the only one still in existence, especially unopened. It would certainly be a rare item to have in a special collection and a great conversation piece when sharing it with others!
This deserves a proper stage to share its story.
