Barmouth is a fair trek for a day at the Beach 😊

Its only 100 mile from us in Manchester 200 mile round trip where as Scaborough in North Yorkshire was close to 300 mile round trip but to be 100% honest i never get tired of driving it and i could of quite easily have gone and done it all again straight away, out of all the series landy's i've had this has been the best for long distance driving 😀

Well i only found this on Barmouth beach as we found other holes that someone had dug so think we need to go earlier and have more of a chance.

Apparently that top has 24 crimps on it but in 1960 all bottle tops crimps was reduced to 21 crimps so that top will be at least 60 years old :)

you learn something new every day..... now I'm curious as to why invest all that money in tooling to drop three crimps and wondering if they did the same here

Yeah I've still got pic's of all the bottle tops I've found not many I know probably about 10 in total and all have 21 crimps on them and are all the usual ones you find all over world like Budweiser, Corona, Stella and alike so would be interesting to know if all countries that make bottle tops are making the with 21 crimps :)

I did a little research lol I was curious 
It was about the time they changed from paper and cork to plastic as the seal, they developed a standard for bottle caps.... with 21 crimps 

I can remember as a kid (70-80's) getting soda bottles with cork caps.... I think it may have been mid 80's when they changed to the plastic and I'll bet 21 crimps
