Jos. Schlitz Brewing Co. opened in 1954 and closed in 1983 it was open for 29 years. Items from breweries of this age tend to be more common and less valuable than some breweries. Early items can still be valuable as can rarer types of items. Breweries that started up right after Prohibition was repealed, up to around the 1950s are the last group that represent highly collectible and valuable Breweriana for the most part. The period after Prohibition was when cans became popular so some of the rarest and most desirable cans come from this period. For cans to be very valuable they need to be rare, and in very good condition in most cases. Our information indicates that Jos. Schlitz Brewing Co. was the only brewery that was located in Van Nuys, CA sometimes this means that items from a brewery will have extra value in the area it comes from because there are not other sources for local breweriana.
