Remarks: "Bay State Ale. Circa: 1939 - 1940. This National Can Corporation, 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 79) with, however; the overall metallic finish. This Grade 1/1+ example is one of only eight quality examples known to the author. Rarity Rating. R-8/R-5." Reprinted with permission from Kevin C. Lilek.
