A friend or ours recently dropped by our house with a few bottles they wanted us to see. They had recently purchased a few of them to add to their collection. I took a few pictures to share with everyone.

Some of these bottles are VERY RARE! As a matter of fact, I have NEVER seen some of them.

It also shows that these type of bottles are still out there, if we can just find them.

Let's start with these 4.......a rare paper label Lem Motlow bottle, 2 Jack Daniel Hopkinsville, Kentucky bottles, and a Jack Daniel Back Bar bottle.

Here is the Back Bar bottle. I believe it is from the early 1900's. Probably one-of-a-kind. VERY RARE!

Close-up is not very clear, but you can still see it is a nice bottle.

The 2 Jack Daniel Hopkinsville, Kentucky paper label, one quart bottles. Unbelievable! Probably around 1912-1915.

The Lem Motlow Private Stock 1895 type bottle. I have never seen this label. I believe the bottom of the bottle said 1940. An incredible bottle!

Probably the prettiest Jack Daniel bottle ever made (in my opinion). The ORIGINAL 1904 Gold Medal bottle with the gold panels. VERY RARE!

A close-up of the back label. Very interesting! Who was Sam Baxter?

Notice the whiskey is one month old.

Thanks Mike!

:o/> :o/> :o/> :o/> Love these old bottles especially the round quart bottles, never seen those labels before. I kinda hope your friend needs to sell them one day. They'd fetch enough to pay off the house! :D/>

Thanks Mike for the pics, astonishing!!
