These 40s were produced well before my time by Arizona Brewing Company, and then as of 1964, Carling Brewing Company. The first bottle pictured is the oldest known 40oz, produced in 1961! The original name of this brand was A-1, but a lawsuit from Anheuser-Busch over the use of an eagle on some of their older packaging caused them to rebrand as Lancers using a knight with a lance as their logo. When former brewery owner Joseph F. Lanser passed away, they paid tribute by renaming the brand once again to J.F. Lanser's. During this time the brewery was struggling and the confusion caused by the frequent rebrandings only hurt it more until they were forced to sell to Carling in 1964.

I need the 3 variants pictured at the end, if you can help please email me.
