Old Kodak metal 35mm film cannisters?

    I have some of the old Kodak metal film cans for
    35mm film cartridges in yellow colors with orange
    and blue tops. I collect old photo gear and was
    wondering when Kodak stopped making them and
    went to the standard plastic containers you get 35mm
    film in these days? They don't sell for much on Ebay
    but I think they are pretty neat for displaying with my
    old cameras. I emailed Kodak I don't expect an answer
    soon...any know the answer?

    The metal cans were replaced in the mid 60s. The replacement actually
    took several years.

    I remember it was in the early 70's when the metal film cans started to
    change to plastic. I still have a bunch of the old cans. I was bulk
    reloading B&W then and reused them lot. They had a tendency to get
    dented though.
