3 of these were found flat and unfolded by a buddy in ARIZONA,of all places.This particular bottlecap logo was used in 1939 by the Grain Belt Brewing Co. of Minneapolis,MN.This measures about 27 x 10 and the outer frame is printed with a woodgrain.To find advertising from this era,in cardboard,is darned difficult.These were snapped up in a minute at a local show.This what they cal "cross-collectible" as it appeals to both beer nuts (me) and hunters or dog lovers.

    Wow, what find! I got mine over 20 years ago, and unfortunately it has considerable smoke damage. I know there is a process that can lift smoke from cardboard, but it's expensive...likely a dry chemical process, done at a commercial or restoration place. Does anyone know of one? Yep, a pheasant phanatic!!!

    I remember when one of those went up for auction on ebay. Unfortunately I did not bid on it and have not seen one since. I have one that is off grade and would love to upgrade mine. The only thing that I think that you might be remotely interested in is a pre-pro oval Hauenstein tray. BTW, I lived in MN for 11 years and was a frequent participant of the G-N-T.
