    Yes, it's Allen's Popeye The Sailor Man Spinach in a Tin Can. Just like Popeye's spinach cans of the 30's, 40's, 1950's & 60's that originated the Green Movement before there was AL G. (A.Gore) in the form of super humans like Popeye the Sailor. All you had to do was "eat your spinach!"
    (Look for this soon to Pop up in the largest auction site on the planet) :-)

      Interesting! I picked this up in Pueblo, Colorado in 1979 from a mom-n-pop mini market. I guess my item may exhibit earlier canning techniques and methods of manufacture, then. Thanks, for the HeadUp!

      It looks like the copyright in the first photo is 1965. If you ask me, a 47 year old can of spinach is pretty old! Much of that sort of thing is in landfills now.
