Brewery Schmidt Brewing Company BCU # 34-18.4
City Detroit, Michigan BCOM #  
Date 1938 (Rare) BIBLE #  

Can Type HP Cone, 12-1
Can Company Continental Can Company
Canning Code 52-4B, "Patents Applied For" in blue
Full information The Natural Brew, missing IRTP statement, "Patents Applied For" in blue. Note that while this can does not carry an IRTP statement, current theory is that this can is pre-war and the lack of IRTP on the can is a mistake. Reasons for this theory are the "Patents Applied For" on the can face (patents approved long before IRTP requirement was dropped) and this can has been dumped on several occasions along with other cans/items that definitely pre-war. This can is similar to MBC 75-08 which has the IRTP statement rubber stamped vertical along the seam.
