---John Paul of Cincinnati, BCCA #42, and his wife found another example in a collection they got in 1971, reportedly in the Youngstown area (brief description in a BCCA News Report article in December, 1971.) John Paul showed it in his winning cone display at Geneva Canvention. Bought by Denny Thayer in the late '70's; to Dick Caughey around 1980 who later sold it to Les Whitman of No. Calif, who then sold it in the early 1990's (?) to a Southern collector.
---Tom Leo example: found in a small Toledo, Ohio collection by Tom Leo in the early 1980's; then to an established Ohio collector; described as around "grade 1-ish."
---Al Kogoy, a well known Penn. breweriana collector, found an c1+ example with the Elmira, New York distributor in a thrift shop and cone was reportedly found in western PA in the '70's; to Dick Anderson, to Dick Caughey, Tom Leo, Hearn, etc. (turns out this can had the cap, but Tom Leo kept the cap in his collection.)
---Jeff Smith is understood to have found one some place as an example was in his collection which was sold to Tony Steffan around 1990; can to Gene DiCicco and then to Tom Waggoner.
Clipper cone was a product of Renner Brewing in Youngstown in the late (?) 1930's apparently for a relatively short period of time. Persons following Renner Brewing know more on this brand and circumstances of the label. There are two variations listing a distributor in Jamestown, NY or in Elmira, NY.
