782 coffee can with monogram: Fifth Avenue 246

Post  Jeremy Ashford on Wed 19 Apr - 15:28

A pleasant surprise find at Three Kings Plaza SPCA shop.

782 coffee can with "Fifth Avenue 246" monogram.

246 Queen Street was the location of the flash Crown Lynn store.
I can only guess that there was a cafe there named Fifth Avenue.
(Google had nothing for me.)

I have a 3618 can (782 can with a reduced footring) with a House of Representatives monogram but this is the first monogrammed 782 can I have seen.

Also, 782s are usually marked Cook & Serve (or a pattern name) but this one has the standard green 1967 vitrified backstamp. I have seen such previously on a Napoli can but it sold quite high on tm so this is the first I have owned. (I do have a 782 Reflections can with a black crown and star 1955-1964 stamp.)

Finn sent me a note on Fifth Avenue.

Auckland Public Library's Auckland Scrap Book, page 103 has a piece on "Fifth Avenue, the new fourth floor at the 246 Shopping centre", with picture and description, dated December 1st 1967. The date coincides with the date of the can.
