Remarks: "Best's Hapsburg Quality Lager Beer. Circa: Early 1936. This American Can Company, 12 ounce container, lists Patents Pending and was filled by Best Brewing Company of Chicago; Chicago, Illinois. Notice the trademark "Keglined", printed at the upper-right of the face panel and on both side panels, in black. Notice the "IRTP" statement, printed in small print, near the bottom of the right side panel. Note also, the word "BEST" is printed in block lettering on the right side panel, as opposed to the Old English font used on the face panel. This short lived package design was introduced briefly in January of 1936. Some subtle changes soon followed making this design quickly obsolete. This Grade 1/1+ example is the only quality example known to the author, and is believed to be unique in this condition. A few lesser condition examples exist also. Rarity Rating: R-10/R-9."
