The FOHBC Expo went off without a hitch, just lots of GREAT bottles on display and for sale. Mike Seeliger and Mike Craig had there Warners display set up with a loop of the companys history on a flat screen tv, If you havent seen this display you are missing out on some great bottle history. The Holabird Westen Americana bottle auction brought some really one of a kind bottles to the gavel, A Gold Dust Whiskey Bottle brought 37,000.00 plus buyers premium and taxes. I found seven bottles for my collection including a Warners Animal cure, and a Hermanu's dyspepsia cure with the warrior embossed on the front panel, a VERY rare cure bottle to say the least. Wasa great time at a very nice venue.........Andy
