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!


It's a great bottle, really wish it was mine, but I'm showing my ignorance now........... 1895 bottle, but box and label have 4 gold medals, which makes it after 1915, how long did they use the 1895 bottle for, when did they start putting labels on the 1895?

This is so awesome to see... I really love the cardboard wrap from the 1905 green label. Simply awesome material. Unbelievable that it still excists.
You got some great friends...

Fantastic collectibles, so glad people have hung on to these items for decades and decades.
What I wouldn't give for that 1895 green label.

it's the 04 and 05 medals doubled up eg 04/05/05/04. they are showing both sides of the medals. I have a mirror with a similar layout 04/05/13/05/04, and a green label with the same thing. Hope that helps PS. it was 1910 so I'm led to belive

We apologize to everyone. When we made this post yesterday, something came up and we had to leave quickly and did not get to answer your questions. We have just now got back on the forum. Thanks for all the nice comments and we believe the questions have been answered correctly. We have a few more pictures to post and will try to do this later today. We took some better closeup pictures of the 2 sealed bottles, but they did not turn out too well. When we get to go back, we will take a better camera and try to take some better pictures. These bottles we saw were setting around on tables, shelves, cabinets, window sills, and on the floor. Where we set trinkets, figurines, and dishes on our tables, they set JD bottles and jugs. Most of them were covered with thick dust and soot from a fireplace. They probably had not been touched or dusted in years. It was unbelievable! They did have the 1895 sealed bottle and box in a large plastic bag to protect it. The picture of the 2 jugs were the only jugs we saw. They said they did not even know how many jugs they had in the back. They think they had one of every jug made by Jack Daniel. When we were invited, we knew they had some JD items, but had no idea how much. We took the camera just in case. When we asked if we could take some pictures, they asked why? We told them we wanted to share the pictures with some friends who collected JD and would enjoy seeing them. They reluctantly said OK. We really enjoy finding these collections and sharing pictures of them with members of the forum. We wish some of these items would be for sale, but in this case, this collection has been passed down through the family for years, and will probably never be for sale. Believe me, we have tried to purchase some of these bottles and jugs! We hope everyone enjoys these pictures and we will try to answer any questions if you have any.

As much as I'd love to own just one of these rare items I fully respect them wanting to keep them in the family ..... as it should be ;)/>

Maybe our collections will get passed down the generations ... nice thought

Fantastic pictures and looking forward to more.

Makes you wonder how many other collectors there are in the world who have items to match that of the above or in fact better and even older and rarer items, and keep themselves to themselves in private to enjoy their personal collection.
