    another nuked bottle

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/121672261613?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT As I can't get the picture to come up stand-alone, I'll describe it. It WAS a clear house ink, one of the square ones with embossed windows and doors. This one is a real shame, in that it's a $100...

    "topaz" umbrella. Color altered?

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/331360385259?_trksid=p2060778.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT The seller also has an owl drug that looks like it's probably not original color to me. This ink just looks too much like the UV altered bottles that we see. If it IS color altered, someone is...

    The latest color altered bottle

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/121360455260?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649 It looks great, except this seller has a ton of color altered stuff, so you HAVE to be suspect. I've seen the davids in aqua, amber and teal green, but not in these more subtle, lighter colors. I'm not...

    more nuking of ink bottles

    This guy doesn't seem to sell anything that he hasn't put through some sort of uv alteration process. http://www.ebay.com/itm/c1900-DEEP-PURPLE-AMETHYST-8-SIDED-UMBRELLA-INK-SMOOTH-BASE-/261419732646?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cddd48ea6 This is about the only one of his bottles showing...

    worst made ink bottle ever?

    canning jar on ebay. Nuked?

    Link. http://www.ebay.com/itm/BEAUTY-THE-MARION-JAR-MASON-S-PATENT-1858-GOLDEN-AMBER-MINT-/111198054973?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19e3ebaa3d I don't know squat about canning jars, but the color seems very odd. Obviously from the bidding, one or more people want it. Is it a nuked color...

    dog river glass

    Not everyone reads the repros section of the forum, and not everyone will look at a posting for old sachem. Dog River Glass is back, and they have repros from a wide spectrum of what we all collect, including whiskeys that look really good, a couple of umbrella inks in color that are bound to...

    Windsor VT label bitters, suspicious label

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/190689487628?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649 I'm always watching for VT bottles for Mom's collection. The bottle is pretty right for the label, but the label doesn't look right to me. It's too smooth around the edges, and it's been put onto a...

    "Pitkin" = repro?

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/320877135856 Am I right that this looks wrong for an original in several ways, including the very strong swirls at the base, the solid rod pontil etc? Or is this a really good very light amber original? Jim G

    An obvious reproduction

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Small-Olive-Amber-Bottle-VERY-Crude-Pontil-REPRO-/260827231773?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cba83b61d Beware of these. I was underbidder on an identical label a week or so ago, but that bottle was old, pontiled and sort of a stoddardy olive amber that looked correct...

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=250766833609&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT On "the bay". Is this right? I've never that I can recall seen a cobalt iron pontiled bottle. Is there any risk this is an altered aqua master/utility? Jim G

    Young's Pure Malt? US Hosp Dept?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/YELLOW-YPM-Mint-/290460378087?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item43a0c9a3e7 Thought this one was interesting enough to watch and post here. Is the seller correct that this is "Young's Pure Malt"? It's embossed YPM and sure looks a lot like a US Army Hosp Dept...
