Memorabilia: The Ideal Cup o' Joe

A few shots of assorted ACME Ideal coffee cans I've found in my travels. Again, unfortunately, none of these are actually in my collection. Can we take a second to appreciate something I've never noticed before, which is that the middle bar of the E in IDEAL is the same shape as the ACME logo?! Am I just slow to pick up on that? Have others noticed that?
Some of these coffee cans have been preserved beautifully, and others have been put to other uses...
If I'm not mistaken, that first and last one was taken in the basement of an antique store in Andover, NJ. The middle one was spotted at an antique mall outside of Allentown, PA.
