Hi guys.. I am new here..So "Hello" first... My husband and I are oldtime bottle diggers and don't usually pick up anything after 1900 or so but today while kicking around in a 1920-30? dump my hubby found a whiskey bottle. It is embossed AMS and the lid says American Medicinal Spirits. Great shape and no Federal law. I looked it up and know when and why it was made ..My question is. Is it collectible or worth anything? It's in great shape and the lid is the best part. Thanks in advance for your help...

Hey Norene, Welcome to the forum. You got to love those medicinal spirits. What a way to get cured. it should have some value to whiskey collectors as it is probably not common. It would help if you could post a picture. We love pictures.

Thanks Zane..Going to try to post a couple of pix of the bottle. Really got a kick out of reading it's purpose and how the people got around the Prohibition law..

Hey Zane, You will really have to be a speed typist to beat my 17 words a minute flash typing and thats with only two fingers. With all my fingers going I bet I could hit 20 words a minute if I could keep from gettin them all tangled up.[;)]

I love bottles and I likes to help folks when I can. Ask your bro and Josh G.[:)]
