Bottle Cap Display Cases and Albums

Bottle cap collecting is a fun and interesting hobby that anyone can enjoy. Popular in part because of the ease with which bottle caps can be acquired and added to a collection.  With the range of consumer products produced today, bottle caps can be found anywhere and are often more visible than you think. But once you find some great bottle caps, you should consider putting the Bottle Caps on Display in your home or office.  And we have just the right solutions for you:

Bottle Cap DisplayOne of the most interesting aspects of bottle cap collecting is investigating the history associated with every bottle cap. Collecting bottle caps is a hobby almost as old as bottle caps themselves, but in the past few decades the hobby has become quite popular as more and more companies use colorful designs on bottle caps to market their brands. Some companies even release limited edition bottle caps that are unique and thus have some value associated with them.

Bottle Cap Collecting History

The first bottle caps were introduced in the early 1800′s. The first modern bottle cap was a screw-on cap invented in 1856. There was also a re-closeable wire-and-cap type of bottle cap invented in the same year, still used today on some high-end beers like Grolsch. The modern “crown cap” bottle cap was invented in 1890, modernized to the “pilfer proof” cap in 1936, and twist-off bottle caps in 1966.

We have a wide range of Bottle Cap Display Cases and Bottle Cap Display Albums so you can arrange your Crown Caps in any way you like.

Some companies even release limited edition bottle caps that are unique and thus have some value associated with them. A very common and increasingly popular way to utilize bottle caps is by constructing new pieces of art or jewelry with them.

Bottle caps are often referred to as crowns, and the sharp edges on the caps are called teeth or tines.  Original bottle caps were made with a small piece of cork inside and had 24 teeth, but modern bottle caps have only 21 teeth and very rarely contain cork.  There are tens of thousands of varieties of bottle caps in existence today.

Bottle cap collecting is an easy hobby to begin and is fun to maintain. There is a very minimal start up cost involved with the hobby of bottle cap collecting, and no prior training is required. Bottle cap collections take up very little space and can be displayed carefully in our bottle cap display cases.
