Remarks: "Bay State Ale. Circa: Late 1937. This National Can Company, 12 ounce container, lists Patents Pending and was filled by Commonwealth Brewing Corporation of Springfield, Massachusetts. This is the same package design as seen on the previous page (USBC-OI 76) with, however; the added black shading to the gray enamel on the face panel. This exceptionally fine, Grade 1/1+ example, is one of only five quality examples known to the author. Rarity Rating: R-9/R-6." Reprinted with permission from Kevin C. Lilek.
