I would love to have that can but my wallet is not that thick.

The can in question is fantastic... I think I can count on 2 or 3 fingers, the number of Opaline cans I've seen in that condition... Even the side panel can be read.....

Wow! Almost $4,000. I thought it'd finish at maybe $2,500-$3,000. How long do you think it'll be before another in less desirable condition pops up. I give it 48 hours.

Why do you assume just because someone pays more than you would, you think the guy doesn't have more money than you..or he is crazy or broke,,, how about maybe he's the smart one WITH money ? NEGATIVE THINKING,,,, or Jealous ??? Don't forget it took two guys with NO money to get it there .
