    These are "normal" sized 12 fl ounce "cans" with the tops being aluminum and the bodies of each a "hard" transparent plastic...? The transparency is easiest to see in the clear Coca-Cola can. The two Coke cans say "Canned under the authority of the Coca-Cola Company, Atlanta, GA by (Canner's name and address appear in this space)".

    Any ideas on what these are/when they were made?
    Any help identifying these is appreciated!

      Great pieces! I have 3 plastic cans: Coke Classic, New Coke and Diet Coke, all sealed but some barely full due to leaks and water evaporating over time. I've had them for over 25 years and was told they were given out in test-markets, or in my case Disney World, to test recyclable plastic as an alternative to aluminum. No telling the real reason but I love them and they sure make a great conversation piece.

      Thanks for sharing!

      Great cans. I have a few like these, but not from USA. You don't happen to have any extras do you?
