7up America's Turning 7up (1976)
7up America's Turning 7up / United States Set
Description of cans:
Made in 1976 by 7up. Each can is numbered 1 through 50 (each state in alphabetical order), and when you stack them together, they make a picture of the United States.
Each can has information about each state. And the background color (Green or white) is what actually makes up the picture of the United States.
This is a VERY VERY cool set. I wish somebody would make things like this today for us can collectors.
