eBay - When a bad picture can be a good thing~

You may recall seeing the post that appeared on May 11th, entitled
"eBay - it never ceases to amaze"

A photo of the item was included;


Imagine my surprise when the new owner sent a photo that he'd taken of the bottle after it arrived. 

What a bottle!

 Congrats on a screamin' deal!

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?
