Hi,
I'm trying to find out something about this bottle. It's 3 1/8" tall and 2 3/16 at widest point. One side (with his likeness on it) says - 1751 James Madison 1836. The other side says Fourth President of the US 1809-17, Father of the Bill of Rights, a signature that I can't make out - Joseuar Hodsh??. It appears to have a barely noticeable seem on the neck. Please look at the photos - can send more. Would appreciate any info.[:D]
Thanks, nangriff

I'm guessing its one its a repro. Not all repro's are wheaton's. You got a pic of the base? A close up might help decide where it came from. Swizzle
