eBay - It never ceases to amaze!


I spotted this listing when it first popped up.

eBay item number: 332209621558
 

The Southern Oregon Antique Expo that I co-produce tied up the tail end of last week, and the first of this. Imagine my surprise when I finally had a spare moment to check on the hammer. 

I have got to say that I was mighty "impressed" with the hammer price considering the apparent condition depicted in the photos, the sketchy description and the prior track record of dead mint examples.


No visible cracks or chips, some bubbles in the glass, and applied ring top, med.- dark Amber in color. This flask form bottle is in good "dug" condition, circa. 1871-1902.This is a pre-pro whiskey flask from a San Francisco distillery.

 

Did I miss something?
