Hi dear collector friends! With this language list I want to present you the word „crown cap“ in many different languages / dialects. I also paid attention on the corresponding „official“ and „common“ words as well as existing dialects. This list is still growing and I am thankful for any kind of addition or correction. Thanks to all collectors that helped me with this project!
