Embossed steel. Embossed inside. Beer. Zhigulevskoye. Production period: after 1991.

Colors:

Inscription on cap: along the inner circumference - "Жигулевское б.п.", along the outer one - "МЭПЗ ГОСТ3473-78".

"МЭПЗ" is stamped along the curved inner text. The separators in the text along the outer circumference are a small circle on the left side and a star on the right side.

Most likely, this rare variation was produced in 1985 after the increase of the price from 25 to 30 kopeks. Many producers had to correct the text urgently, and as a result there is no price at all on the cap. This is not a defect, because there are similar variations from other factories, particularly in Leningrad...
