    Yeah those gloves can be slick and it was a real shame. I felt bad for the unlucky person, (you maybe), who didn't get it and I felt really bad for him because you know when that thing hit the floor,...

    You never know with an auction screwtop. All it takes is 2 people who want it badly. I've seen that bottle go anywhere from $250 to $400 but they were all a lot lighter cobalt with weaker embossment....

    Thanks Screwtop. Here's another one. Aqua is the most common other than clear but what makes this one special is it has an iron pontil base. This is the only U.S.A. Hosp. Dept bottle to have a pontil...

    Thanks Sand. I'll try and get some pics of my favorite ones up in a day or two. Gotta brush up on how to post pics on here. It's been awhile. Should I post the pics here or in a different forum?

    GEM BUTTER Jar 5lb

    Hi all, I dug one of these 15 years ago and I know it's not rare, but I think certainly scarce. It has the correct glass insert and zinc screw closure. I only have the Red Book # 9 and I was...
