there is no such thing as an official Lem Motlow mini  ;)

 

that unofficial one shown in my collection I bought with a collection many years ago, however if you'd like one Roy made us a label to print out - http://maxwellshouse...low-mini/page-3

Max;

Thanks for the link.  Scan looks great, but it would look odd siting next to my 2 empty Motlow bottles.  LOL

Everyone else has already said "Wow" and "Awesome" and "Amazing" . So I'll just sit here with my mouth hanging open and drooling.

Yeah me too on this sentiment . . .  am I missing the #2 MD bottle though

One of my favourite items to collect, I really believe the Lem Motlow name doesn't get a fraction of the recognision it deserves, if it wasn't for Lem, the Jack Daniels brand would never have returned after prohibition - fact.

Magnificent collection of Lem's !!!   Outstanding !!!

 

I have been looking and watching Ebay and they are very hard to find now and very expensive. I think back a few years ago (maybe 6 or 7) and empty's were fairly common and reasonable priced  and I wasn't smart enough to buy them when I had chances. Blew it big time !!  I have two but sure would like more !!... But wouldn't we all  !!

The eBay prices have been ridiculous in recent years, but these high prices just seem to be the "dealers" just trying their luck with high buy it now prices, they don't necessarily get these prices though because you often see the same auctions being relisted time and time again.

I was lucky enough to change direction with my collecting just at the right time, it was JeePee who encouraged me to go after the older rarer items instead of collecting the modern gift sets etc

JeePee was a wise man and a very knowledgeable collector !!!  Gone way too soon.!!!!

 

 I know what you are talking about with those high dollar pieces that get relisted over and over, never selling.. I could name several Ebays that are guilty of that as well. But why !!!

 

 I get the impression they really don't want to sell their items..  Some are worth looking at but no one is interested at those prices... Waste of time in my mind !!!
