Trap Your Caps in a Map! Vintage Beer Cap 50 State Display Map Board

.


Lots of bottle collectors also enjoy collecting ''go-withs'', including colorful vintage bottle caps, also called CROWNS.

Here's a neat way to display your collection, from our friends at UNCOMMON GOODS.

They sell 2 different shaped boards that you pop your caps into. 

This one is kinda-sorta-perfect if you have a '50 State' collection since it's shaped like the United States, although it holds 77 caps.

Crafted from Baltic birch plywood, the openings have small teeth that fit the crimped edges of caps to hold them securely, and the board sports additional holes to hang the whole display on your man cave wall. Handmade in Tampa, Florida. Available here for only $35.


Maybe your collection is from A-Z, or regional, or by brand. Just pop your caps into this bottle shaped display board. Also only $35, available here.
