This bottle is a round 1947 bottle that is full and sealed. It is in PERFECT condition. It looks like it has never been touched! As you can see, it is 5 year old whiskey. It looks like it could have just been bought from the shelf of a liquor store. My description and picture does not do this bottle justice.

I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO jealous, all I want is an 1895 bottle, not much to want, but seeing all the rest, I might have to become a rent boy, then again, if I did, not sure I'd make enough to buy a 2007 mini lol

There are some really great collections over there, thanks for showing us :)/>

This is a round Lincoln County, Hopkinsville, KY, 100 proof bottle. I believe the date on the bottom of this bottle was 1945.

This is a cameo box with a brochure, mini bottle, and shot glass in it. I have never seen one of these. They thought it was from the late 60's or early 70's. Again, in perfect, mint shape!

This is an original 1895 bottle with a paper label on it. It is FULL AND SEALED with the original cork! Next to it is what is left of the cardboard box it came in. Truly incredible!

WOW



There is some increadible stuff there, are the owners serious collectors, or is it "just" little bits and pieces that they have picked up over the years because it has local interest? I bet there aren't many sealed 1895's around.................. Is slavery legal anymore in Tennessee, I'd sell my soul for some of this stuff lol

1 more.

I would like to add that these bottles and jugs were just what was in the den and living room that we were in. They said the main part of their collection was in the back of the house and they would show it to us at a later date. I cannot imagine anything being any better that these incredible bottles!

:wow/>:thumbsup(score)(score)/>(score) Those are some incredible bottles!!!!!! i've never seen that wrapping for the sealed 1895!! And as for the rest, that round 1940's bottle is in fantastic condition. And the Hopkinsville bottle is incredibly rare as is the double lip 1895 with ceramic pourer!!. Would love the pint with 7 year label (i have the 6 year one but not 7 year one). Please thank your friend for letting you share these pieces with us. (need to clean up all my drool of the PC desk now) ;D/>
