was searching thru some sold listings and saw 2 Lion's bottles had sold , only appear to have had 1 bid and sold for $25 . I've seen the embossed one before but had not seen the acl bottle , it appears to be more unusual perhaps ?

Yeah I think that ACL is one of their last bottles. I've got an earlier ACL of theirs but not that one. I don't think that one shows up often.

I've had a chance at 3-4 in the last 5 years or so, but I always pass on them because the ACL is in poor condition....that one is pristine!
It's an 11oz I believe.

I have 6 different The Lions bottles. There are two versions of the crackly art deco bottle. Notice the shape of the L and the one bottle has rounded mountains, while the other has pointy mountains.

Never knew that there were two versions of that bottle! Though I suppose the differences are subtle enough that I'd never have noticed if I wasn't holding both in my hands. That one in the far left on your photo seems to be pretty hard to find, I've only seen pictures of it a couple times and don't remember ever seeing it in person. Do you know if there are any more you're missing? I know there's a seltzer bottle at least but not sure if they put anything else out.
