Vtg 1950 1960 Sanka Coffee Tin "new No Key Can " W Lid 1 Lb General Foods Ny Usa For Sale
Vtg “ modern New No Key Can “ Sanka tin metal Coffee 1 pound mid century
I have not been able to find the exact date when coffee cans changed from a key opener system. As you can see, this can would be one of the first examples of the can after the key opener went away. It is the “New No-Key Can.” Easy to Open Vacuum Packed.
It even gives you directions on how to open the can – this is printed on the side – You take off the plastic lid and then use your own can opener on the metal top and reseal with the plastic lid!
My best guesstimate is late 1950’s to early 1960’s -
