This might be my favorite one yet:

“Gunther’s beer Premium Dry Lager
Packed at the Brewery by Gunther Brewing Co. Inc., Baltimore MD
Tax paid at the rate prescribed by Internal Revenue

Flat top – requires churchkey to open

I believe this can was buried behind my bathroom walls in 1947 when the house was built (Shepherd Park). Which matches the date range for the tax label (required on cans filled before March 1950). The Gunther brewery building still exists in B’more – turned into apartments!”
