Looks nice to me, but who knows??? When were these produced? Maybe the bottle is leaking because the seller wrapped it into cellophane. I personally donīt really like it when ebay sellers have no feedback yet... is it anyone known?

IMO. this is the real deal! I have an empty one of these with worn labels from the early 50's, Low starting price for this condition, I wish I had the funds!
As for no feedback, everyone has to start somewhere.
Exquisite bottle, love for it to go to a member!!

Many wrap their older bottles to help keep the labels in tact and to help protect them....

if you look at the tax strip it is 55- ##### think that is a 1955 bottle if I'm not badly mistaken !! or may be 2001 and Jimmy signed it as it came off the line! ;D/> ;D/> ;D/>

I "googled" the Internet for a while and found this picture.
The picture was put on photo bucket by LYNCHBURGLARRY. Or it is his bottle or he knows about it.
For sure this is the one selling on Ebay at the moment.
Apparently he can tell us more about the authenticity of the bottle.

Anybody in contact with him ?

I don't think that's Larry selling the Lem bottle. I was offered this bottle together with a half pint mint Apple Brandy about a year ago.
The airline minis were also for sale... but the lot was MUCH bigger which included some Banif Airline bottles. ;D/>

Last time I spoke with Larry was last August.... and he wasn't doing too well.

Not me. I would have been intrested if not for the signature. I do not like my old bottles to be signed. Lots of collectors do, but not me.
