Pabst Blue Ribbon circa 1958 mini beer can metal coin bank measuring 3 1/2-inches tall. A coin slot is on the top and the all-important removable hatch graces the bottom.
The bank is in three vibrant colors: blue, gold and silver. Features the famous Pabst Blue Ribbon logo and the legends Since 1844 and Commemorating Over 100 Million Barrels.
I'm dating this bank circa 1958, which is when Pabst went over the 100 million barrel mark according to the company's history: "The first campaign under Windham’s regime was on April 1958; Pabst passed the 100 million barrel spot since its beginning in 1844. A red stripe was added to blue ribbon logo to celebrate the memorable event. The red stripe is still with the logo today."
I have four of these banks available. They are in top condition, with no rust and 100% of their bright, clean colors still intact. There is the usual wear on the bottom of the bank.
The price listed here is per bank. The scan really doesn't do the banks justice at all. Great for coin bank or beer advertising collectors.
Don't settle for some rusted, beat-up version elsewhere. Latch on to one of these gems for your collection.
PBR, once brewed in Milwaukee, Peoria Heights (IL), Newark and Los Angeles (as listed on the can bank), was at one time a huge player in the American beer market.
