I almost immediately thought 'Ka-ching?'. Maybe there was a way to capitalize on these sort of mistakes. Heck, people were willing to pay for those screwed up dollar coins. Maybe there are people out there who would find the novelty of a closed coke can without coke equally fascinating. The can had obviously been slightly deformed in whatever miskey that had caused its lack of soda with some symmetrical clamp marks on its sides. As I was turning it around, I noticed that there was also a metal ding on its bottom edge. With a sinking feeling I put my mouth around the ding and after sucking in some air, found to my disapointment that indeed, it was a small hole.
It looks like I didn't have a completely sealed yet empty coke can after all. Gone were thoughts of novelty and eBay, replaced with the sad realization that coke had simply gypped me out of 12 ounces of soda.
