No. The 4077 was a fictional outfit in the novel MASH by Richard Hooker. His real Name was H. Richard Hornberger,M.D., and he was, in fact, a surgeon during the Korean War. He worked at a REAL MASH Unit: the 8055th, and his books are based upon his experiences as a surgeon there. In fact, many of the plot lines from the show are taken directly from Hooker's experience. There were, also, many army surgeons who wrote in suggesting stories for plot lines that were actually used during the run of the series.

What is a 6 pack of mash 4077 worh?

Almost nothing. Most people that buy novelty cans buy them as collectors' items and put them on a shelf somewhere, so there's no real shortage of such cans slowly going bad in the basements and garages of the US. And nobody wants to drink it; MASH 4077 beer was mostly produced by Pearl, which was not exactly regarded as a premium brand even when it was fresh.Rule of thumb: anything specifically designed to be "collectible" is likely not going to appreciate in value very rapidly; what winds up being valuable is stuff that was so common everyone bought it, used it, and threw it away without thinking "Gee, I bet this will be worth money someday."
