    Whiskey Jug

    Yeah, you're right. All references I have found to "C. Lacher" whiskey jugs have the number "4" on the label -- the Mississippi Bottle Book and two separate half gallon jugs all list the "4". No doubt that meant something to Mr. Lacher, but what I have not found out! Certainly is unclear...

    Mississippi whiskey jugs

    I collect Mississippi milk bottles and Mississippi whiskey jugs. I just acquired a Half Gallon 'scratch' whiskey jug -- "C. Lacher" from Vicksburg, MS. It has the number "4" on the label, but it is only a half gallon jug -- so, what does the "4" stand for?
