"The Trade Mark Cocomalt means a Davis product. Made only by R.B. Davis Company, Hoboken, N.J."
While date as the 1930s, it is probable that this can was from early in the decade as the inner seal is unprinted and paper. Later seals were embossed soft metal and could be used as proofs of purchase for promotional premiums.
