Welcome to my website dedicated to crowntainer beer cans from the 1940's era.  My name is Gary Gauger and I specialize in collecting crowntainer beer cans.  Feel free to look around and contact me with questions, comments, or if you have a crowntainer can you would like to sell.

Crowntainers are a style of beer cans that have a funnel-shaped cone top that was sealed with a bottle cap.  These cans were manufactured by the Crown Cork & Seal company in the 1940's and early 1950's.  Unlike other cone top cans, crowntainers were a two-piece can made with a seamless steel body and a tin-plated bottom.

I am a private collector who specializes in crowntainer style cone top beer cans.  I have focused on crowntainers for over twenty years and have built the largest collection of crowntainers.  I collect all variations of crowntainers, even minor variations such as IRTP or alcohol content differences. I collect cans that are in very clean condition.
