Bay State Ale OI 81 Find!

NOTE:  DARK AREAS TOWARD TOP OF CANS ARE SHADOWS, NOT IMPERFECTIONS.

The person who found these cans bought an 1820 Farmhouse that had been in the same family since new. He tore up a floor above a crawl space and there was a “parcel bag” (the old school heavy paper with string holding it together like a box) amongst the debris. Inside were the 7 cans.  put them aside to show my wife. She googled them and said they had some collector value. This is the silver metallic variation with the NY distributor left of seam.  7 of these were found in MA ranging from very good to poor condition. From top left to bottom right:
