Over the weekend, a Lancaster County auction attracted collectors from all over the country. One collector paid $36,000 for a can of beer.
A “Gibbons Bock LP Cone Top” – billed as the “holy grail of Bock cans,” complete with metal cap – fetched the top amount, $36,000.
A pound of gold costs less – about $28,000.
Some cars, weighing a ton or more, are cheaper than that empty can.
A slew of other beer cans went for similarly staggering prices as more than 4,000 beer-related items were up for auction from a Chicago businessman’s collection amassed over 40 years. [Inquirer]
