Does anyone know if a 1.75L fake seal Lem Motlow bottle exists? I swear I saw a picture
of one on "Craiglist" last month. It wasn't for sale. It was just in the background of a picture of some guys
collection that he had posted. (Not On Here)
Thanks

it's a NO from me too - maybe a Black Label with a Lem Motlow tax seal but certainly no Lem Motlow labeled bottled! ::)/>

I am sure the U.S. had not converted to the metric system when the Distillery was still producing Lem bottles. I would have to say "no" also.
Could it have possibly been a transition bottle? I think they were '78-'82? I do not believe I have ever seen a Lem transition bottle.

I have looked at 3 of my Lem Fake seal bottles and the dates range from 1985 - 1989. They are 200ml, 375ml, & 750ml. Now my 1976
paper seal Lem bottle is 4/5 qt. I don't know. I'm still keeping my eyes open for that picture to come up again. Who knows, I may have had to much
Jack to drink the night I saw that pic. (pint)/>

Okay, I finally found this picture again. It is the bottle to the far right. It may be a Liter bottle, but it looks awful big to
be a Liter. Let me know what you think. It may also be paper seal instead of fake seal.
