Was ever made Lem's brand for Export? Or was it only in the USA available? Or has someone seen a paper sealed bottle with a Export seal? Just wondered ??)

very good question, I've never thought about this before but I don't recall ever seeing an export seal either so I would think it was only ever a US release

Very unlikely to go export. It was only sold in Tennessee and Georgia i believe.

Can't agree here, sorry! I have a Czech Green label with special front and back label ;D and some others from Japan ...... with special stickers on labels and boxes! But never seen before a Lem bottle with special sticker or Export tax stripes :B

I had no idea that green labels were exported !!   Always thought they were only distributed  in some areas of the US !!!   Interesting !!!
