Beer cans are graded according to condition. They range from perfect to trash (sort-of). Because I always pay top dollar for cans, I use this chart to determine the value of the can you want to sell to me.

Flat Tops beer cans are just what they imply. The tops are flat, and to open them, you had to use an opener called a "church key".
