Nice bottle, but priced about twice what it is worth.

Hi Mike, i guess to own a bottle like this you can expect to pay anything between $1000 and $1500 but what about the rest of the Uncle Jack bottles, how many different shapes are they and did they come with any kind of labels (front and back) on them? This is a mystery to me and i would like to understand more about that bottling?

of this bottle-- this is the only one i have ever seen that was intact-- even though it has a crack in the backside-- but--- the only one i have ever seen-- it is EXTREMELY rare---but i think 3,000 is a high price--- again, i say,------- beauty is in the eye of the beholder-- a person will pay what they will pay for a bottle-- according to how bad they want it!!!

This is only the 3rd bottle of this kind I have ever seen. All 3 I have seen are broken. This bottle on ebay has a crack all across the back. If not for this, I would say the bottle is worth $3,000. Very rare! Very few "Uncle Jack" bottles are known to exist.

Reproduction label, but the bottle is worth more than the starting price. It is an old, apple/peach brandy bottle without the label.

I totally agree. That bottle is worth a lot more that ten bucks. Plus is looks kind of nice with the repro on it. :)/>

I see there are now a few bids on this bottle. Still a good buy at $20 in my opinion.

Yes it’s a reproduction label, it looks aged but then in fairness even these reproduction labels are probably around 40 years old now

Luckily these repro labels had flaws in them, marks and blemishes to make them look old so you only need to compare them side by side

Here is a genuine Uncle Jack Label (not on the original bottle)
