    One must be careful with some of the minis, especially the figural type. There are lots of Taiwan fakes around

    Yeah, I know fakes everywhere. This guy had am amazing sample collection. He had probably at least 50 to 75 sample bitters and other types mixed in. He displayed them at one of the national shows years ago. He said what got him started was that he dug one of the better bitters sample bottles.

    I specialized in bitters for years and am quite familiar with the square and rectangular and round minis but there are FEW authentic figural minis around. I'd have to think hard about it to remember even one TRUE figurative. However, if he displayed at a National show they should have been authentic. I may be ignorant of true, authentic examples.
