On our way back from TN last weekend, we stopped in an antique store and saw a few older jugs. One of them I had not seen before. The prices seemed very high, so didn't buy any, but would like comments on the prices.

The first 2 pictures are of an older gallon jug with a hairline crack on the back for $1295.

The next set of pictures is of an gallon jug from the 60's? (that's what the tag said). There aren't any cracked on this bottle, even tho the flash showed some interesting lines on the brown portion of the jug. I haven't seen one like this before. (for $395)

And last are 2 pictures of general store jug. I don't have any jugs, so I don't have any idea on age (70's or 80's?) for $125.

I really can't tell you if this are regular prices or not, as I'm also not into jugs. Not yet anyway. Not at this point in my collection. But seeing such prices, I think I will never get very enthousiastic for these older jugs.

I think the first one is about the right money to be honest, I really love that jug, and I wouldn't have worried about the hairline crack! ;)/>

Canīt wait to see what Mike has got to say. 1295 USD is a lot of money for one old jug, isnīt it?

The first jug is very nice and probably close to the going price. As for the other two... I think they are both way over priced. They are reproductions I think... could be wrong but I have both of the last two pictured and not sure they are worth that much.... just my opinion of course ;)/>

First jug went out between $700.00 - $850.00 about 1 1/2 week ago, real nice jug though, it just depends on what you are willing to pay for it.
Second Jug about $40 to $75 and i believe it is from the early 70's or late 70's.
3rd jug went out 2 different time around $35 to $45 not sure of what the age is, but i
would think around the 70 's or 80's.
All these jugs have been on ebay.

The last two jugs are from the 1970's - 1980's time frame. You should be able to pick either one of those up for $50 or less.

As hard as those old Gunter jugs are getting to find, I would think the $1295 is a very fair price. JMHO.

the last pic of the yellow jug w/handle --- this jug was done in a reproduction almost exactly as the original-- it is hard to tell them apart-- so looking at it, it may be very old or it may be the repro from the 70's-- these were also sold i the general hardware store a few years back and i am not sure if the hardware store still has them or not.................

the newer ones have darker blue writing on them and are more of a beige color than the old ones.

A little high on the old, 1 gallon Gunter jug, but not out of line. Do not like the crack, but does not effect the price very much. Agree....they are getting VERY hard to find.

Last 2 are reproductions and overpriced in my opinion.

Sorry Dale, but the last one, which is a reproduction of the original, is as different as night and day. Set the 2 beside each other, and there is no doubt which is the original.

Please do not get fooled by these reproductions. Do not pay old prices for new jugs. They still sell them in the Hardware Store for $25-$35.

Oh my gosh. :o/> That Gunter jug is way out of line. We got that same one for over a grand cheaper than that. Ours has a hairline crack in it too, but I don't believe that it is anymore noticeable than this one. I think that they are more than three hundred dollars over on the White Rabbit. But that is JMHO.

These prices are from when Jack was 40-43% alcohol by volume (80 - 86 proof)
Roger Brashears would have been the person to contact at that time if you had question or wanted additional information about Jack Daniel's from the 3 fold pamlet this picture & prices comes from
