I just found this in a box from an old lady. Please help me find out more about it. I have never seen a can full with no tab. Is it from another country?

    From wikipedia,,,,,,,,,,In 1963 the first pull tab beer cans appeared on the market. Pittsburgh Brewing Company used the tabs on their iconic Iron City Beer and consumers loved them. But these easily removable strips of metal caused a whole new set of problems. Litterbugs seemed determined to scatter the sharp metal tabs everywhere. Pets and wild animals often choked on them and they cut swimmers’ feet at the beach. In 1975, the first fixed or stay tab beer can was introduced by Falls City Brewing Company of Louisville, KY. The design caught on has remained relatively unchanged since.
    So your can is pre 1963 and would need a special opener to use it, I will post one later when I locate it.
