Remarks: "Alt Heidelberg Brand Premium Pale Export Beer. Circa: Late 1938 - Early 1939. This American Can Company, 12 ounce container, lists 2 Pats.- Others Pending and was filled by Columbia Breweries, Incorporated of Tacoma, Washington. This is a similar package design as seen on the previous page (USBC-OI 27) with, however; the removal of the words "du feine", replaced by "brand" on the face panel; in an attempt to de-emphasized the Germanic heritage association following Germany's attacks on eastern Europe. Note also, the "Laboratory Control" paragraph remains on the left side panel. This Grade 2 example, is arguably the best of only fifteen examples known to the author, and a quality, Grade 1 example may not exist. Rarity Rating: R-7." Reprinted with permission from Kevin C.
