Here is one of the OC/OC "Holy Grail" cans.  I have been told that the Castletown Cone was made during World War II specifically for the British troops serving in Northern Africa fighting Rommel's army.  Few cans survived and even fewer have been "shelved" (about 4-5).  While there is some evidence from brewery records that two other brands were canned by this brewery during the war years, this is the only version unearthed from this semi-autonomous British Crown Dependency.

While it has been touched up,

it is still a classic of two color graphics!
