    Detroit Bottle Show finds.

    Got a table this year & sold a small amount of Bottles. Maybe $200 worth. But then spent $400 on about 40 bottles. Most of them were common bottles I picked up from a Friend on ebay & he delivered them to show to save me some hefty Postage. Then picked up a few at the show, some of them Pictured below. Some are Damaged but cheap for rare bottles. LEON.Click image for larger version.

    Supossably the Shepard & Hazeltine from Grand Rapids is one of only 3 known to exist. The Hops & Malt Bitters is from Detroit. LEON.Click image for larger version.

    Good stuff! The Grand Rapids one looks like a great score. I had to miss this one because of that annoying thing called work.

    I don't think it's been tumbled, mainly because it has the wire lightning stopper intact, if found outside these are usually missing being rusted away or if intact very rusty. This ones stopper is very nice & clean. This stopper would have to be removed before tumbling & then reapplied after tumbling, not easy to do. Possibly Attic find? LEON.

    That's what I was thinking. Good looking semi-cabin that looks like a rare one?

    I gave the Shepard & Hazeltine a quick light tumble. Looks better but needs more tumbling. Hard to get a good pic at night in the dark. It had a note on side when I purchased. LEON.Click image for larger version.
