while visiting my dad's and his girl-friends apartment I saw a bottle on the top shelf with a flower in it, I took it down to look at it, it was a Hutch bottle, about 7 inches aqua blue, that read Phoenix bottling wk Dunkirk NY. the slug plate embossing was a bit crooked. I saw on hutchbook.com that it's considered an error, WK should be WKS. I didn't see anything about the crooked slug plate. it was given to her by her great grandfather years ago. I was just wondering if it's something rare. I bet there's alot of people out there who have a bottle sitting on there on the window and don't even know what it is. I like spreading the hobby she was thrilled when I told her it was over 100 years old and that it could be something for her to hang on to.

Last one sold on Ebay went for $40, was there room for an 'S' after the WK, if not I wouldn't consider it a mistake but just a bad job laying out the slugplate...
